It does not apply to the marketing of chickens by anyone licensed under the Nova Scotia chicken marketing plan. J. A. Watson, secretary-mana- ger of the board, said in an in- terview he hoped the measures would be "temporary" and that Bill C197 now being discussed in committee in Ottawa would take a strong stand on dumping.
