Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time.


STEAMBOAT INSPECTION ACT AMENDMENT.


Mr. LEIGHTON MCCARTHY moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 7) to amend the Steamboat Inspection Act. He said : This is the Bill which I introduced last session, I trust hon. members distributed it throughout the community and obtained an expression of opinion upon it from their constituents. It simply increases the standard of engineers and also prevents American tug boats doing business in Canada with engineers who have not obtained certificates from the Canadian government. The same remark applies to dredges. The present Act allows an uncertificated engineer to work in a dredge ; but under this Bill an engineer employed on a dredge must have a certificate from the Dominion government. It also seeks to do away with the perinits which at present may be granted by tbe Department of Marine to men who act as engineers for a season, and creates a fourth class of engineers to whom certificates may he granted, in the event of the owners of steamers being unable to obtain engineers of the 1st, 2nd or 3rd class. Motion agreed to, and Bill read tbe first time.
