AND THE MACHINERY ACT. ('Pee United Prkss Ac-scciATioy.] PALMFRSTON N., November 27. A deputation of managers of dairy factories in tho Manawatu, Hawke's Bay, Northern Wairarapa, and Rangitikei districts waited on the Hon. F. M. 13. Fisher this morning in connection with a clause in the Inspection of Machinery Act which requires all engines to be in effective charge. Mr C. R- Beattie, the spokesman, pointed out that would mean the appointment of a certificated engine-driver, at an extra cost of £3 £5 to the factories. The Minister said that when the clause was framed he never thought that dairy companies would be affected. Tho provision was necessary in saw-mills and flaxmills. When he got back to Wellington he would set tho department working to see if it could not distinguish between machinery which is dangerous to human life and harmless machinery. He would do his best to meet their complaint.
