Mr. W. C. GOOD (Brant):

In view of the possibility of further amendments to this act being suggested by the committee on Public Accounts, would it not be better to let the matter stand for a week or so, and proceed with the bill after we have had the suggestions from, the committee?

Mr. ROBB:

As I explained to the House yesterday, the government feel-and in this we are supported by the department administering the act-that we have sufficient security without the lien which is proposed here. It is represented to us, and I concur in that view, that if the provision respecting a lien is left there, the result may be a material interference with the business of the country. It seems to me we should expedite the passing of the bill.

Mr. GOOD:

I was misunderstood, I think. I am not objecting to the bill. I only suggested we might let it stand so that further amendments might be incorporated in it. Perhaps that can be done in committee.

I suggest

that it would be improper to continue with this bill until copies of it are in our hands. They are not on our files.

Mr. ROBB:

We can go into committee on it. There is only one clause in the bill. It reads as follows:

1. Section twenty-five of The Income War Tax Act, 1917, as enacted by section seven of chapter forty-six of the statutes of 1924, is repealed.

Income War Tax Act

Mr. ROBB moved that the House go into committee on the bill.

Motion agreed to and the House went into committee, Mr. Gordon in the chair.

On section 1-Lien for income tax repealed.

Mr. GOOD:

I wish to repeat my suggestion now that the bill is in committee; namely, that it should not go out of committee until we have had an opportunity to incorporate in it any further amendments that may be suggested to the Income War Tax Act. Otherwise we shall be in the curious position of introducing two bills in the same session to amend the same act. There are no objections to this particular amendment, but I think it is premature in view of the probability of the offering of further amendments a little later.

Mr. ROBB:

As the session is getting well

along, and as there appears to be no objection from any part of the House to the repeal of this section, I suggest that the bill be allowed to go through. We shall be prepared to consider whatever recommendations are made to the House by the committee on Public Accounts, but in the meantime I do not think it is wise to delay this legislation.
