TEMPLEMAN (Minister ot Inland Revenue) moved for leave to introduce a Bill (No. 127) respecting Commercial Feeding Stuffs. He said: This Bill proposes to deal with feeding stuffs for domestic animals. There is no law dealing with these substances other than indirectly. The Bill runs pretty much along the line of another Bill now on the Order
Paper dealing with agriculture fertilizers. It is proposed to compel manufacturers of commercial feeding stuffs to register and sell their products under a number given by the Inland Revenue Department, and to put upon the packages the guaranteed analyses of the contents of the food sold, thus creating to some extent, a standard by which the manufacturers of these foodstuffs will sell and affording the purchaser some guarantee of the genuineness of the article bought. The Bill is believed to be very much in the interests of the purchaser and has been approved by agricultural associations and others interested.
