are threefold: first, to extend the definition of the word "fish" to include shellfish; second, to enable the governor in council to make regulations respecting the processing and marking of fish to be packed in containers, and, third, to provide for seizure as well as for powers of confiscation upon conviction for an offence against the act or-regulations. The last named addition will bring this act in line with the Fisheries Act and the Meat and Canned Foods Act.

Yesterday the hon. member for Peterborough West (Mr. Fraser) asked this question:
Will any British Columbia canned salmon be released to the trade in Canada this year?
The answer is this. Arrangements for the distribution of this year's pack of canned salmon in British Columbia contemplate the release of 300,000 cases for civilian use in Canada. Actual release by the packers to the wholesale trade is now going on, and details of distribution throughout Canada are under the direction of wartime prices and trade board. This quantity is 50,000 cases more than last year. The bulk of the pack is again going to the British government in conformity with the allocation recommended by united nations combined foods board and approved by Canadian food requirements committee.
