Mr. BRITTON.

I am inclined to think the objection is well taken, to some extent at all events, because it will be seen that according to the definition under clause 3, a closed package ' means a package of which the contents cannot be seen or inspected when such package is closed.' The whole question is as to the definition of the word
[DOT] package,' and some form of words such as that suggested by the hon. member for Wentworth seems to me to cover all that is required. Unless something of that kind is put in, it. seems to me difficulties will arise in the attempt to enforce the law.

Topic:   WAYS AND MEANS-EMPLOYMENT OF CHINESE AND JAPANESE.
Subtopic:   INSPECTION OF FRUIT PACKAGES.
