§ Mr. Kimball
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will continue to regard the hand as the correct measurement of a horse on a veterinary 242W certificate for soundness even if stallion licences have gone metric.
§ Mr. Strang
The veterinary profession will be consulted during the coming months on changes it is proposed to make in the veterinary certificate used in connection with stallion licensing. On the face of it, it would be preferable to bring the certificate in line with the statutory forms as far as the use of metric measurement is concerned.
