SCOTT (West Assiniboia) moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 137) to regulate the sale and provide for the inspection of textile fabrics. He said: The object is to prevent the sale of shoddy as pure wool. Provision is made that all shoddy shall be accurately marked or labelled and penalties will be levied for the infringement of this provision. The Bill is of considerable importance to the woollen manufacturers and wool-raisers, and on a second reading there will be ample opportunity for full discussion.
