I have an amendment to
submit, as follows:
That subsection 2 of section 150 be amended by striking out all the words in the second paragraph thereof after the word "weights" in line ten up to and including the word "provides" in the twelfth line, and substituting therefor the following words:
"Only when such grain is shipped to a point at which there is no official grading and no official weighing."
The clause as drafted presumes that all grain leaving a country elevator will go to a terminal point or some place where there are official scales and weighing facilities, but such is not the case. A large trade is carried on in the transfer of grain from one point to another, as in the case of feed, seed and various other things of that nature. The clause as drafted makes no provision for that, and I think the amendment would cover it.
