Mr. TUSTIN:

Possibly I did not make myself clear. I am not finding any fault with the grading of the poultry, but the poultry which was brought into the market square on these particular days, unless it comes through the pool, is not graded. Last year the pool did not function and none of the poultry brought into the market was graded. The farmer is not allowed to grade the poultry himself, and there were no inspectors from the Department of Agriculture there to grade it. The result was that every farmer was forced to sell the poultry at the ungraded price, no matter how good or how poor it was. That is what I am complaining of.
