asked the Minister of Health if it has been represented to him that the Regulation governing the production and sale of grade A and grade A (certified) milk, which requires receptacles to be labelled with the name of the farm of origin or the name of the farmer, act in restraint of sales of these high-grade milks, because buyers are thereby led to connect the purity of the milk with particular farms instead of with the Government Regulations under which these milks are produced, so that if for any reason the output of milk from any particular farm diminishes buyers refuse similar milk from some other farm when offered to them in lieu; and will he consider the advisability of amending the Regulations, so that the number of the Government licence shall be substituted for the name of the farm or farmer, with a view to assuring the public in an unmistakable manner that their confidence may be placed impartially on any milk bearing the Government guarantee, and that they are not dependent on any particular farm?
