The CHIEF SECRETARY (Hon. T. Pascoe)
—By the retirement of Mr. Williams, late Chief Inspector of Stock, Mr. Loxton has become Chief Inspector of Stock and also Chief Veterinary Surgeon. The chief clerk in the department has practically done all the work of the registration of brands for many years past, but he could not have the title, unless it was given him by Act of Parliament. This Bill is therefore intended to give him the title of Registrar of Brands, a work for which he has long been responsible. I move the second reading.
Bill read a second time and passed.
