John Allister Currie

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. J. A. CURRIE (North Simcoe).

This I take to be with reference to patents for the making of ammonia powders. Some explosives for military purposes are now being manufactured by ammonia process instead of nitrates. This government may be manufacturing such explosives, and it may be that here is doubt about the wisdom of recognizing any such patent as this. The promoter of the Bill is not present to explain the matter, so I would ask that the Bill be allowed to stand.
