Sydney Arthur Fisher (Minister of Agriculture)
It is simply to give statutory authority for the incorporation of Seed-Growers' Associations. In consequence of the investigations that have been made by my department into the seed business of the country, certain people have expressed a wish to form themselves into an association for growing seed grain and other agricultural seeds. At present, there is no law under which these people can be incorporated and do their work legally as a corporate body. Some years ago parliament passed a statute for the incorporation of live stock associations, and this Bill is very much in the same form, as applied to seed growers.
