Sydney Arthur Fisher (Minister of Agriculture)
I think the hon. member for West Algoma (Mr. Boyce) has a little misunderstood what we agreed upon the other night in the committee. There were-certain doubts raised in regard to clause 11, which I quite admitted might be referred 571
to the Department of Justice, so that it might be made clear that it expressed what I intended and what I gathered to be the sense of the committee ; but I do not think it was intended to refer any of the other clauses or that one which my hon. friend brought up. That clause was discussed at some length and was eventually accepted by the committee, though, of course, my hon. friend did not agree with the decision of the committee. I moved that the Bill be referred back to the committee for the express purpose of amending these clauses 10 and 11. That has now been done, and I do not think it would be in the interest of the Bill or in the interest of the House further to discuss matters which have already been settled. As the hon. member for East Grey (Mr. Sproule) says, there is no need of going out of committee in order to go back into committee. We are now in committee, and any member may move for the reconsideration of any clause in the Bill.
