He said: The purpose of this bill is to
bring the Patent Act into conformity with the terms of the international conference for the protection of industrial property, as revised at the eighth conference of 1925. I may add that the changes are of a minor character. There is an amendment to section 40, concerning the granting of licenses for the use of an invention when the necessary and reasonable requirements have not been complied with, and this involves the addition of the following words:
Or that the patentee has failed adequately to manufacture the patented invention in Canada.
There is also a change made in section 49 which relates to any foreign ship or vessel entering the country temporarily. The words " air craft or land vehicle " are added to that clause.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
