Hon. W. R. MOTHERWELL (Minister of Agriculture):

Speaking for myself, I have not so far decided whether it would be advisable to introduce the bill at the present session.
We have had a good many bills of a similar character, multiplying restrictions manifold; and while I am personally willing to put further restrictions upon the people, I am not at all certain that it is advisable to impose them too heavily and too frequently at such short intervals. I am, however, quite willing to be advised by my colleagues and by my hon. friend (Mr. Sutherland) as well with respect to the advisability of introducing the bill at this session. I may observe that I have it all ready.
