Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I will read

the section and hon. members will see how the mistake has arisen:

It shall be unlawful to make any entry for exportation of any intoxicating liquor, destined for delivery into any country into which the exportation of such liquor is prohibited by law.

The amendment is to change the second " exportation " to " importation." It depends an which side of the line you are taking your stand, I think.

Mr. STEWART (West Edmonton):

We found that there was some conflict in connection with subsection 3 of section 6 of the National Parks Act as it applied to railways, and in order to ascertain the real standing as between our claim of ownership of right of way and the claim of the railway company we have allowed the section to be stricken out for the time being. Subsection (3) of section 6 is as follows:

No lands within a park, other than those specified in subsection (2) hereof, shall be patented or conveyed in fee.

There was a strong feeling on the part of the railways that we were taking arbitrary powers under this bill to dispossess them of rights which they thought they might have or rights which were in dispute. We do not want to put ourselves in that position; we do not want to take advantage of the railways and by an act of parliament put ourselves in any superior position. It is a matter that will have to be settled between the government and the railways.

Mr. KING (Kootenay):

This refers to an amendment to section 7. The purpose is to delete the word "or" in the fourth line thereof, which is undoubtedly a clerical error. The section deals with deductions not to be made. The draftsman, Colonel Biggar, has set them out separately under sections (a), (b) and (c). The section is clarified and it is acceptable to the department.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The amendment is apparent on reading the section. The section reads:

The governor in council may at any time order that this act or any one or more of the provisions of this act specified in such order, shall extend and apply to any other kinds of fish, whether pickled or not, to fish oils and to the containers used for packing and marketing such fish and oils;

The words " for packing and marketing such fish " are deleted as being superfluous, and in their stead are inserted the words " or to 'be used " so that the section will apply not only to oontainers that are used but to containers which are to be used.
