Mr. ROBB:

Mr. Speaker, I am not sure what the agitation is to have all the evidence printed. I know a number of gentlemen who are shorthand writers would like to be employed to take the evidence. I have not had a talk with the chairman' of the board as to that feature, but we want to keep down the expense as much as possible, and he is insisting that such evidence as is introduced must be put in writing.

CUSTOMS REGULATIONS-AUTOMOBILES


On the Orders of the Day:

William Garland McQuarrie

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. W. G. McQUARRIE (New Westminster) :

Mr. Speaker, may I ask the Minister of Customs (Mr. Boivin) whether any change is contemplated in the regulations with regard to the admission of American automobiles? As I understand it, at the present time the regulations provide that when a man comes to this country as a tourist he can bring in his car and use it for a certain length of time, but if he comes here for the purpose of looking after an investment, or perhaps making an investment, he has to place his car in a garage and not use it at all. I believe representations have been forwarded to the minister-I know I have sent some in myself-and a great many protests have been made as to the present regulations, particularly from British Columbia. It seems to me that these regulations are not reasonable,-

Mr. McQUARRIE:

-and certainly they are working a hardship.

lion. GEORGE H. BOIVIN (Minister of Customs and Excise): Mr. Speaker, no change whatever has been made in the regulations admitting automobiles temporarily since I assumed charge of the Department of Customs. During the past few weeks I have received several representations from hon. members on both sides of the House pointing out cases where, in my opinion, the present regulations worked considerable hardship on Americans desiring to enter Canada. The rule so far has been that a bona fide tourist may enter his car for thirty days, and if he desires to give a bond he may enter it for six months. It has been ruled in the department, however, and regulations have been framed, to the effect that any person coming into Canada for commercial purposes, in other words, deriving any pecuniary benefit from his visit, should not use his automobile without paying the duty thereon. As I stated a moment ago, there are a few cases where this appears to me to be a hardship, but with the stress of woik in the department I have been unable so far to give due consideration to the regulations and suggest any amendment to council This, however, will be done just as soon as ihe session is over.

Mr. A. de WITT FOSTER (Hants-Kings): Mr. Speaker, before the minister sits down, may I ask if he will take into immediate consideration the case of a person who, having

been in Canada for six or eight months, has made application to the department to have his car released from storage for a couple of weeks in order to put it in repair before starting back to the United States? Will the minister say whether or not he will allow that car to be released for repairs?

Since there is money lying idle in the Canadian banks, does not the minister think we should be protected against American investments?
