I beg to move the following amendment to this section:—
At end sub-section (3), line 60, to add the words, " provided that if any such imported butter is exported the provisions of this sub-section shall not apply."
This section deals with the application of the word " creamery." As it stands the section would allow New Zealand creamery butter into the country. Of course the fact that it is called creamery butter on the New Zealand package could not obviously come within the definition of this Act, because we are not able to say whether or not in was manufactured in a creamery from pasteurised cream. Unless some words are inserted in the sub-section which would limit the use of that butter to consumption in the Saorstát, it might be possible to take that butter and export it, and it may be called Irish creamery butter or creamery butter from Ireland, which would be a distinct breach of the intentions under this Bill. It could be sold as creamery butter from Ireland on the English markets, and it could easily be proved that it came from Ireland by the consignment note. I want to indicate by the insertion of the words in my amendment that all butter coming into the country is coming in for consumption in the country, and that it should not be allowed to be exported from the country, and run the risk of being sold as creamery butter which comes from Ireland.
