OCEAN SHIPPING RATES

REPORTS OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE

LIB

Andrew Ross McMaster

Liberal

Mr. A. R. McMASTER (Brome):

Mr. Speaker, with your permission I would like to present on behalf of the special committee appointed to consider the resolution to give the government of Canada control over certain ocean rates, the following as their first, second, third and fourth reports:

Your committee recommend that they be authorized to have their minutes of proceedings and evidence printed from day to day for the use of the members of the committee and that rule 74 be suspended in reference thereto.

Your committee recommend that they be granted leave to sit while the House is in session.

Your committee recommend that the reports on freight rates made by the special committee to inquire into Agricultural Conditions during the 1923 session be referred to the committee.

Your committee recommend that all reports, letters, documents and other papers laid on the table of the House during the present session and referring in any respect to the order of reference to the committee, be referred to the committee.

May I crave your permission, Sir, and that of the House, to move the concurrence in these reports immediately? I do so because they are purely formal and it will tend to expedite the business at the next meeting of the committee, which will not be held until after the Easter recess, when we desire to proceed without delay.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

Yes.

Mr. MoM ASTER: I think it is a

christening for which the clerk of the committee must be responsible. I presume he gathered his inspiration from the speeches delivered in the House in connection with the subject matter.

Hon. J. A. ROBB (Acting Minister of Finance) :

CORRECTION-Mr. LOGAN DUTY ON COAL

On the Orders of the Day:

Mr. HANCE J. LOGAN (Cumberland): Mr. Speaker, I desire to make an explanation: In the debate yesterday, when the hon. member for Brome (Mr. McMaster) was speaking,. I interrupted and stated that the legislature of Alberta had passed a certain resolution in reference to coal duties. I find that I had been misled; it was not the legislature of Alberta that endorsed the increase of coal duties; it was the government of Alberta.

With all due respect to the question of privilege raised by my hon. friend opposite, I beg to point out to him that it was the Premier of Alberta, not necessarily the government.
