CUSTOMS AND FISHERIES PROTECTION ACT AMENDMENT.

?

Hon. A. B.@

AYLESWORTH moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 138) to amend the Customs, and Fisheries Protection Act. He said: This Bill proposes! to amend the Act so as to prescribe the method of proceeding where steps are taken to condemn a ship which has been seized and where such proceedings are taken, not in the Exchequer Court but in the Superior Court of a province. There is provision in the law as it stands that such proceedings may be taken either in the Exchequer Court or in the Superior Court of a province, but in some of the provinces no rules are irre-scribed for the taking of such proceedings in the provincial court and practical difficulty has resulted in endeavouring to get on. The proposal is to remove that difficulty by providing that, unless and until rules of procedure are prescribed by the provincial courts, the rules of procedure existing in the Exchequer Court shall be followed.

Mr. GRAHAM.

On this question, perhaps I may be allowed to explain that the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Foster) has asked for some documents in connection with the matter. There are practically no documents so far as I can ascertain, but I am having a statement made that will cover both this question and the motion of my hon. friend from North Toronto.
