Mr. LENNOX.

I understand that one hon. member opposes this Bill, but I have heard from a number of people that the measure is much needed and ought to be put through this session.

Mr. FIELDING.

If it were a new Bill there might be a possibility of delay, but, as it has passed the Senate, we can deal with it here at any moment.

Mr. SPROULE.

There is the additional fact that the shipping interests have practically agreed to the Bill. I have here the minutes of the Senate which shows that their representatives were before the committee and practically agreed and were satisfied. Therefore, those who, above all others, might be regarded as not desiring to have the Bill pass unless in reasonably satisfactory form have agreed to the Bill. The representatives of all the shipping lines from Montreal were represented, I believe.
