February 18, 1936

Mr. DOUGLAS:

I asked the minister a

question a short time ago, and I want to pursue it because of the two questions that have been asked. In replying to the questions the minister dealt with meat going over the retail counter and meat going into cans, but what about cattle that have been condemned for dairy purposes and a strong suspicion remains in the mind of the government veterinary that it has been butchered and peddled through the town? Of course he has no authority to act, but is there any way by which the matter can be reported to the provincial and municipal authorities and be taken care of? I know of government men who have strongly suspected that that was going on, but it is not within their jurisdiction to do anything about it.

Mr. DOUGLAS:

What provision is made to protect consumers against disease in cattle that have been butchered? Oftentimes they are butchered outside and peddled in the town. I know of cases where that has been done, with very serious consequences.
