Mr. RYCKMAN:

The proposed bill is so

simple and short that I am surprised my hon. friends raise any objection to it. It deals with amendments to the Petroleum and Naphtha Inspection Act, and it also deals with a 100 per cent Canadian product. The act as it stands at present provides that:

Petroleum shall not be sold or offered for sale for use in Canada, for illuminating purposes-

Among other things.

- (b) if it weighs more than eight pounds and seventeen-hundredths of a pound per gallon.

I want to change that seventeen-hundredths of a pound to four-tenths of a pound. The reason is this, that the consistency of the petroleum in the red sand district of Alberta does not happen to fall within the act, but it would so fall if this paragraph read "four-tenths" instead of "seventeen-hundredths." There is no objection raised by anyone and this amendment would allow a market for this petroleum without the necessity of gasoline being added to it in order to bring it within the requirements of the act as it now stands.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Mr. DURANLEAU: (Minister of Fisheries; Minister of Marine)

1. Yes.

2. No. In the opinion of the Department of Justice it is not competent to the Vancouver harbour commission to enact such a by-law.

3. Not at this session. A partial revision of the "convention concerning the protection against accidents of workers employed in loading or unloading ships" is on the agenda for consideration at the 16th session of the International Labour Conference to be held at Geneva, April 12, 1932.

1. The agreement between the Dominion government and the province of New Brunswick under the Unemployment and Farm Relief Act, 1931, provides that the Dominion shall pay to the province for remittance to any municipality 33^% of the expenditures of the municipality for direct relief where suitable work cannot be provided for the unemployed. No recommendations have been made by the province of New Brunswick in regard to the granting of direct relief to any municipalities in the province of New Brunswick, but the federal government is paying one-third of accounts for municipal direct relief as certified by the province in accordance with the agreement.
