Mr. Speaker, if I might
address Your Honour on the point of order, I would point out that the creating of the proposed fund could hardly be interpreted as a tax. It might be drawn upon or it might not, according to circumstances. If the immigrant were competent to look after himself when he came to Canada, there would be no necessity whatever of expending that fund, and it would automatically revert to those who had contributed. But if there are expenditures, such as we have at the moment, to look after those immigrants, they should come from this fund.
