Mr ARCHIE CAMERON (BarkerPostmasterGeneral) (12:49 PM) . -I move -

That after the definition of" approved growers' organizations" the following definition , be inserted: - "grower", in relation to a poll of growers taken for the purpose of this act means the occupier of an orchard from which at least two hundred and fifty bushels of apples or pears were exported in each of at least two of the three years preceding the taking of the poll in relation to which the expression is used.

Mr Nock - Should not the definition be worded " apples and /or pears " ? The owner of an orchard from which are exported 200 cases of apples and 50 cases of pears, or vice versa, should be embraced in this definition.
