Mr. DURANLEAU:

Mr. Speaker, this bill is intended to ratify two international conventions, the first of which was signed at London on May 31, 1929, having to do with the safety of lives at sea, and the second of which was signed on July 5, 1930, having to do with the load lines of vessels. Thirty countries were represented; Canada was represented by the deputy minister of Marine, Mr. Johnston. These conventions were signed by the representatives of all those countries, and this bill is designed to ratify the action of Canada's representative.

Hon. R. J. MANION (Minister of Railways and Canals):

I have no authority as yet to lay the report upon the table of the house; it is a private report which was submitted to me. I may tell my hon. friend, however, that in the near future-I think within the next ten days-there is to be a meeting between Mr. Beatty, Sir Henry Thornton and myself at which the matter will be discussed. Perhaps then I may be able to find out when we may print and lay on the table of the house the report to which my hon. friend refers.
