Mr. SPENCER:

The purpose of this bill is simply to enforce that clause of the Bank Act which limits the rate of interest which may be charged. According to the act the highest rate that may be charged is 7 per cent, but banks in the three prairie prov-

in-ces very largely, and in other provinces to a certain extent, are charging more than the lawful rate.

Mr. BENNETT:

I mentioned, Mr. Speaker, yesterday that in view of the near appointment of a parliamentary committee to investigate the matter referred to in this question, probably the hon. member would drop the question. He does not seem to be in his place, but perhaps one of his colleagues would speak to him about it.
