Mr. A. K. MACLEAN (Halifax):

I desire to ask the Minister of Naval Service (Hon. J. D. Hazen) whether the patrol service, at Halifax and Sydney, Nova Scotia, is a Canadian or an Imperial establishment? If it is a Canadian "establishment, to what extent is it to be developed and enlarged?

Hon. J. D. HAZEN (Minister of Naval Service):

It may be correctly said that the service is partly Canadian and party Im-

perial. There is a section of the patrol service which is under the control of Imperial officers; another is under the control of the Canadian Naval Department. In respect of certain parts of the service, it might be said that there is mixed control.

Sir WILFRID LAURIER:

The only important change is the amendment in section 4 changing the close season for the hunting and killing of moose, deer and mountain goats. I presume my hon. friend has looked into the matter and is satisfied that the period suggested is preferable to the one contained in the Bill as it passed this House.
