§ 63. Mr. Rankin
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will taken the steps necessary to ensure that the source of origin will be designated on Argentine beef when it is put on sale to the public.
§ Mr. Peart
Under present legislation such meat must be marked; it may however be marked either as "foreign" or with the name of the country or origin. The Trade Descriptions (No. 2) Bill will give powers to require the country of origin to be stated and the question of origin marking requirements will be considered when the Bill becomes law.
