OBJECTS AND REASONS.
Section 4 of the Principal Ordinance provided for a
Standing Committee of the Treasurer and t'he Peas-
ant's Adviser and one unofficial member to fix the
local value of agricultural produce intended for export.

who do not appear to desire the appointment of such a
member. One of the objects of this Bill is to amend

position of the present rate of export duty on
vacuum produced concentrate would make production
