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.

Mr. THOMPSON:

I say that cheese is sold here according to the government grader's grading. It will be graded No. 1 here, and sold as No. 1, and quite often the grade is changed when it gets to the Old Country to No. 2 or No. 3. The old country merchant refuses to pay for the cheese, and the government so far has refused to stand behind their own grader's grading.
