Mr. BALLANTYNE:

Outside of the territorial limits. Representations were made to the American Government regarding this and on March 15 last a Bill was introduced in the House of Representatives to prohibit the importation of, and the bringing into or landing in the United States, of lobsters taken in waters outside the territorial waters during the close season. When legislation is passed by the American Congress and the Canadian Parliament neither Canadians nor Americans will be allowed to fish for lobsters outside of territorial waters during the close season.

Mr. FIELDING:

Apart from this question of the fishing outside of territorial limits, the Bill does not deal with the lobster question at all. The hon. gentleman's department, as the public know, is contemplating some change in the lobster regulations. but that matter will be dealt with, I suppose, in the form of regulations, and not in this Bill?
