Mr. THOMPSON:

I think the explanations given do not apply to conditions in East Hastings. The cheese are held there until they are properly matured for grading. The cheese board have regulations to that effect, and no cheese is allowed to be offered for sale until they are matured. In that section I have known cases where cheese properly matured, as I have stated before, have been graded as No. 1, and regraded in the Old Country, and billed back to the buyer. The buyer has paid on the cheese according to the government grader's grade, and it so suffers a great injustice. If this government appoints graders throughout to grade these cheese, in my opinion they should stand behind the grade given. If not the grading is practically a farce.

Mr. THOMPSON:

We have regulations on grading. Do they not cover the improvements which the minister has outlined. In the first place he is speaking of cheese which is too green. If I understand the regulations aright, it is the grader's duty to hold the cheese until they are properly cured and fit for market. If the boxes are not up to the standard the grader's duty at the present time and under the present regulations, is to put them in a lower grade.
