Jacques Bureau (Minister of Customs and Excise)

Liberal

Hon. JACQUES BUREAU (Minister of Customs and Excise):

This is a matter that is dealt, with not by the Goveroor-in-Coun-cil, but by the department. The regulation is a departmental one. The Minister of Customs is the party who suspended the regulation on the 8th April. This regulation was made on the 24th August, 1914. Since the regulation has been passed, a good many protests have been lodged with the department, and in view of the fact that the Department of Customs is now preparing legislation providing for the appointment of a board whose duty it will be to make a special study of taxation, and who will act as advisers to those who are to administer the tax laws as well as to those who are to make them, we have seen fit to suspend the suspension and the old regulation remains in force. But I want to emphasize the fact that the idea which seems to have gone out, that this is a governmental measure, is erroneous. It is not; it is departmental, and your humble servant is the sole and only responsible party. He has no apology to make either.
