On the orders o>f the day:


PRO

John Evans

Progressive

Mr. JOHN EVANS (Rosetown):

Is it the intention of the government to bring down legislation to legalize the leeway of 5 per cent which is allowed before the special or dumping duty is applied, and why was this regulation set aside on October 10 last?

Liberal

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

I would just as soon answer the

question now. So far as I know, no such legislative action is contemplated. The reason for the Change is to bring the regulations into harmony with the act itself.

TECHNICAL AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES


On the orders of the day:


IND

Alan Webster Neill

Independent

Mr. A. W. NEILL (Comox-Albemi):

I

should like to ask the Prime Minister whether he can see his way clear to afford the house an opportunity to debate the report of the Royal Commission on the Technical and Professional Services before action is taken. There are in it recommendations that it is highly desirable we should discuss, and suggestions to be made, and it will be too late for this to be done if the report is carried out, presumably by an item in the supplementary estimates.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

There will certainly be

ample opportunity to discuss the report at any time legislation based upon it is introduced. That will afford the opportunity my hon. friend desires.

Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

May I inquire of the Minister

Hon. CHARLES STEWART (Minister of the Interior):

Changes were contemplated

which were designed to come into effect on July 1. A royalty was to be collected on oil. Very strong representation, however, was made to extend that period, and I am now considering the matter.

Mr. BENNETT:

There is another question arising out of that. Is it the intention of the government to make such regulations in view of legislation now pending in respect to the province of Alberta?

Mr. STEWART (Edmonton):

In view of the fact that their natural resources will very likely be transferred at an early date, I was going to recommend to the government that we do not bring that regulation into effect.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition) :

As the rule now stands, unless

unanimous consent is granted the Speaker cannot leave the chair to-day for supply. The Prime Minister mentioned yesterday evening that we would go into supply to-day. I overlooked the fact that it was Friday and I fancy he did too. We are quite content so far as the opposition is concerned, that supply should be proceeded with to-day by consent, provided that on Tuesday next Public Works supply is proceeded with. That is, the supply of no other department will be proceeded with on Tuesday next but we shall go on with Public Works so that there may be an opportunity for moving an amendment before the Speaker leaves the chair.

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The leader of the opposition is quite right in assuming that I had not noticed that to-day was Friday, and neither did he. I will undertake to say that on Tuesday next we will go into supply again on the estimates of the Department of Public Works, but I would say to my hon. friend that before going into supply, we would like to proceed a step further with the three motions concerning which notice has been given to-day. One of the motions includes the introduction of the bill with respect to war veterans. Our reason for that is this: the only government days at present are Tuesday and Friday, and I believe it would be helpful to the house, before proceeding further with the discussion of the resolution moved by the

Supply-Harbours and Rivers, N.S.

hon. member for Muskoka-Ontario (Mr. Mc-Gibbon), that it have before it the legislation which the government intends to bring down. With these exceptions we will carry out the arrangement as suggested.

Mr. BENNETT:

Speaking for those associated with me, I may say there is no objection to proceeding to the bill stage provided that on Tuesday next we do not proceed with the second reading of the bills.
