Liberal

Mr. CARVELL:

When addressing the House on the budget debate, I discussed the question of the small reduction in duties which were made upon raw sugar by reason of the West Indian agreement and the Customs Tariff Act. I stated at that time that it would not assist the consumer to any great extent, because all the sugar refiners in Canada were in the combine. I have since been informed that one refining com-Mr. PERLEY.

pany, the Dominion Sugar Company, Limited, was not actually in the combine. I am told that they sell direct to the retailer. I do not wish to mis-state any position and I take this opportunity of making these remarks.

CONSERVATION ACT AMENDMENT.


House proceeded to consider an amendment made by the Senate to Bill No 204, to amend the Conservation Act/-Mr. Borden.

CON

Robert Laird Borden (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BORDEN:

The amendment is merely to the effect that the Bill shall come into force at a date to be fixed by an order clause published in the Canada Gazette. It was thought that some little inconvenience would be occasioned if the Bill came into effect at once. Therefore it was postponed to a date to be fixed.

Amendment read the first and second time, and concurred in.

On motion of Mr. Borden, House adjourned at 1.25 a.m. Saturday.
