Mr. MILLAR:

This is a clause that appeared also in the original bill as drawn by the representative of the commission. I am not sure which section it will be, we travel so fast. It will read as follows:

No grain shipped from a private elevator shall be accepted for storage in the general bins of the public terminal elevator, but such grain may be stored in a special bin in any public terminal elevator, under regulations to be made by the board for the purpose.

Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):

I understand f,he committee, in their wisdom or otherwise, deleted this from the bill, and evidently after very careful consideration. I am inclined to favour the decision of the committee in this matter. I think we have covered this question fairly thoroughly now, almost to the satisfaction of everyone.

Amendment negatived.

CANADIAN MARINE INSURANCE

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Before the

House adjourns I may inform the House that 1 have received a cable from the high commissioner. enclosing the report of the Imperial Shipping committee, as follows:

Summary nf Imperial Shipping Committee's Report on Camul:an Mariiu* Insurance

The Iu'pt rial Shipping committee has completed a unanimous report on Canadian marine insurance. The question w :t - referred to the committee by the Canadian government rather more than a year ago. As a preliminary step it was announced last summer that the comm.:tee had persuaded the underwriters to remove Halifax from the warranty which created a differential charge for the insurance of shipping entering British North American ports. Since then a mass of evidence has been obtained which is marshalled in the forthcoming report. The improvements to navigation and

[Mr. Crmrnr.1

the record of casualties submitted by the Canadian

government and the underwriters have been scrutinized. In view of the complexity of the problem involved it is impossible to summarize briefly the evidence but the conclusions at which the committee has arrived are that there is a presumption in favour of the present differential on the St. Lawrence, but that the evidence is in one respect incomplete, and moreover that directional wireless maj' alter the statistical position. The committee suggest that having regard to all the circumstances the joint hull committee should reconsider the position of St. John, N.B., and Prince Rupert, B.C. Under the warranty they also propose that steps should be taken for a systematic record of casualties in the St. Lawrence and that so long as the warranty is maintained there, all reference to British North America should be omitted from its title. The report will be published simultaneously in Canada and Great Britain early next month.

On motion of Mr. Mackenzie King: the House adjourned at 2.20 a.m. (Tuesday).
