Mr. FRASER (Cariboo):

My point is that if the department would do away with the collection of those fees and the reporting of them to the department it would give its officers an opportunity to cover their territories in less time and to do more work. I do not think the department would be

Mr. FRASER (Cariboo):

I would like the minister to consider a question which has worried me from time to time in regard to the imposition of these charges. This act is framed for the protection of the public, but

you make the individual who owns the scales pay for the inspection. I do not think that is fair, and I suggest that under this section and at this time consideration should be given to the removal of the charges for inspection of scales. I do not refer only to the actual amount collected, which is not very large; I want to point out to the minister that in collecting this money and making the returns more than half the time of the inspector is taken up, which limits the work he is able to do in connection with the inspection of scales. The fees collected are not large but they occasion a great deal of clerical work on the part of the inspector, who has to make out reports from time to time. In view of that and the further fact that the fees are imposed on the owner of the scales for the protection of the general public I think these fees should be removed entirely.

Mr. FRASER (Cariboo):

Order, Mr. Speaker, please. Listen to this. An investment of $100 in the Pioneer mine in 1925 is now worth $265,500.
