Ernest Lapointe

Laurier Liberal

Mr. E. LAPOINTE:

Notwithstanding what the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Sir George Foster) has said, I do not think it is a good precedent to create, for this House to continue to sit on the Lord's Day. That has never been done during the fifteen or *sixteen years I have been a member of the House, and for my part I protest against continuing the work of the House at the present time.

Mr. DOHERTY:

I move to strike out the letter (b) in the 18th line of section 152 because as there is now but one paragraph, there is no occasion for the lettering.

LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Before the minister proceeds further, I should like to understand clearly the significance of this legislation. As I understand it, at the present time there is an Order in Council which prohibits the importation and manufacture of intoxicating liquors anywhere in Canada. That Order in Council will expire when we get out of the state of war. There is, I believe, an impression which, I think, the hon. member for Lambton East (Mr. J. E. Armstrong) shares, that this legislation is in the nature of a measure which will continue that prohibition.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I want to understand that that is not the case, that this Bill does not continue that prohibition. If this Act were law to-morrow there would be no greater measure of prohibition in Canada than there is to-day.

With the War Measures Act abolished there would be this greater measure of prohibition, that if the people of the province so expressed their will the importation of intoxicating liquor into any area of the province would be prohibited.
