Is it intended to compel the manufacturers of fungicides and insecticides to put on the package the chemical analysis of the article?

Mr. MOTHERWELL:

Approved analysts

will be appointed to whom samples suspected of not 'being up to the mark will be submitted for analysis. I suggest that we can proceed more satisfactorily if we consider the bill in committee.

, Mr. ILSLEY: I desired to call that point to the attention of the minister because I know that is what the fruit growers of Nova Scotia are demanding. They wish provisions to be enacted similar to those existing with regard to the sale of fertilizers. They regard this matter as very much akin to that of fertilizers.

Mr. MOTHERWELL:

Not only have some of the insecticides and fungicides proved1 useless, but many have proved exceedingly injurious and have destroyed the foliage of trees.

Peter McGibbon

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. McGIBBON:

I presume that when the minister refers to the appointment of analysts he has reference to some of the men already in the employ of the government?

Mr. MOTHER'WELL: In the case of a number of acts like those dealing with feeds and fertilizers there is provision for the ap-

pointment of what we call approved analysts. There is no salary connected with the position, but the public will know that these men are recognized by the department as properly qualified approved analysts.

Is it the intention of the department to set up a bureau to handle this matter? I did not understand that there were any such new officials to be appointed?
