Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

This motion involves concurrence in the report of a committee, which permits certain bills to be considered at this stage of the session. I merely rise to say that the government cannot give any approval to this course of action being pursued with respect to at least one of the bills which might involve rather lengthy discussion. We will not oppose adoption of the motion, but there is no assurance that the legislation can possibly be considered at this session.

Motion stands.

I wish to state that I am laying on the table of the house everything that the railways agree might be given.

Hon. ALFRED DURANLEAU (Minister of Marine):

I have also to lay upon the table certain information received with respect to the insurance which was effected on the ss. Bright Fan. A few days ago the hon. member for Melville (Mr. Motherwell) asked for this information. Upon the previous occasion I stated from memory that I had received the information from the insurance company. I shall have to rectify that by stating that the information was received by the owners of the ship.

Maurice Dupré (Solicitor General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DUPRE:

The object of tlhe amendment is to add a subsection to section 28 of the Judges Act, which is chapter 105 of the revised statutes of Canada, 1927. The purpose of the change is to provide that any judge of a superior court of any province oi the Yukon territory who continues or is continued in office after attaining the age of 75 shall suffer a reduction in salary to an amount equal to that which he would receive by way of retiring allowance, if he were retired at 75, less any sum which he may receive from the provincial government by way of additional remuneration. The new salary rate will commence when the judge attained or attains the age of seventy-five years, or on the first day of July, 1933, whichever is later. In the case of a judge who would not be entitled to a retiring allowance if retired at the age of seventy-five, the operation of the act will be postponed until he is eligible for a retiring allowance.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
