Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to inform the House that I have received a report from the Clerk of Petitions, who directs the attention of the House to the fact that the petition of Alexander Birnie and others, presented yesterday, is irregular in that it is addressed to the Prime Minister of Canada and not to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I found it hard to understand the reply, but I believe the hon. member must have thought I referred to something else. The motion made yesterday is another matter. What I am asking is whether or not he proposes to make a report to this House of the conclusions of the Committee on Agriculture and Colonization as arrived at.

VANCOUVER HARBOUR COMMISSIONERS


Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Marine and Fisheries) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 106, to amend The Vancouver Harbour Commissioners Act. He said: Under the present provisions of the Vancouver Harbour Commissioners Act, the appointment and control of the port warden and the shipping master is in the hands of the Harbour Commission.



Questions



The duties of these two officers are to enforce the Canada Shipping Act. In all the other harbours of Canada these two officers are appointed by and under the control of the Department of Marine and Fisheries. It is felt that these two officers at Vancouver should be under the same control. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
