Committee on Finance. - Health Bill, 1947—Financial Resolutions.

I move:—

That provision shall be made by statute for the making by the Minister for Health of regulations relating to food and drink and providing for the imposition of certain charges.

This provides for making charges with regard to registration, etc., under the food regulations in this Bill. Charges will be made under Section 50 for the licensing and registration of persons and premises and under Section 51 for standards and certificates relating thereto. The financial resolution is necessary for that purpose.

Resolution put and agreed to.
