Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, as a matter of

privilege, and because it is of some public interest, I should like to be given an opportunity of making a correction of a news item which appeared yesterday in the Canadian Press, including the Ottawa papers and the Toronto Globe. It has to do with the tabling in the Ontario legislature of the report of the Ontario Liquor Control Board. Portions of the article appear to be quotations from the printed report itself. The paragraph to which I take exception is not necessarily a quotation-as to this I cannot speak definitely, not yet having seen the printed report

C.N.R.-Pension Fund

-but it received publicity and should be contradicted. This is the paragraph:

Under present conditions much liquor is shipped from Canada ostensibly bound for Mexico and Cuba, but never gets further than the United States.

This undoubtedly has reference to liquors which are exported from the province of Ontario from river and lake ports. I desire to say that for some years no clearances whatever have been given to vessels ostensibly clearing for Cuba or Mexico or South American points. So far as exports through ocean ports are concerned, those must be landed in the country to which they are cleared, because they go out under guarantee bonds for double duty, which bonds cannot be, and never are, released until proper landing certificates are produced by the shipping companies.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

GRAND TRUNK ACT, 1906-7, AMENDMENT- PENSION FUND


The house resumed from February 12 consideration in committee of Bill No. 2 to amend the Grand Trunk Act, 1906-7-Hon. Mr. Dunning-Mr. Johnston in the chair. On section 2-Short title.


LIB

Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

Mr. Chairman, this bill was left in committee on account of a legal question connected with section 2. I have taken up with the law officers of the crown the remarks of my hon. friends opposite, and am informed that the desire is to get a citation for pension purposes which will be reasonably concise and will relate specifically to the matter of pensions. The law officers have redrafted the section to read:

The said act as amended by this act may for pension purposes be cited as the Canadian National Railways Pension Act, 1929.

That I think meets the objection raised by the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) and the member for South Wellington (Mr. Guthrie).

Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

My hon. friend will observe that t'he effect of his amendment is to designate legislation of ten years ago with legislation of to-day as the Canadian National Railways Pension Act of 1929. This is not customary. If the date, 1929, be left out I can of course appreciate the amendment.

Mr. DUNNING:

Apparently the Department of Justice desires to have in connection with the citation of every act a date, and for pension purposes of course this particular act

Civil Service-Private Secretaries

does complete what was formerly done. At least am I right in assuming that the point my hon. friend raised previously has been cured by this suggestion?
