LIMITATION OF ARMAMENTS

CON

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) :

A very considerable interest has been manifest in this house in the proceedings of the conference on the limitation and reduction of armaments and of all subsequent proceedings arising out of that conference. The Department of External Affairs has thought that it might be well if a short resume were prepared and published of the proceedings to date, and this has been done under the direction of the officials of the department. I now table two copies in English and French of the report of the conference on the limitation and reduction of armaments, 1932 to 1934.

Motion agreed to. Tariff Board


CANADIAN AND BRITISH INSURANCE COMPANIES ACT


On the orders of the day:

Liberal

Mr. R. W. GRAY (West Lambton):

I

wish to direct a question to the Minister of Finance. I have received, and I think other members have as well, letters and telegrams protesting against a certain clause in a section of a bill, being an act to amend the Canadian and British Insurance Companies Act, introduced in another chamber and now being considered there. I refer to section 34, which states that every British company other than Lloyds shall, as a condition of being registered, make a deposit with the minister. Lloyds is not required to make that deposit. Has the minister received such protests, and will the government-this being a government measure-take cognizance thereof?

Hon. E. N. RHODES (Minister of Finance):

Obviously the question could not properly be addressed until such time as the bill is before the house. The question ought properly to be directed in the Senate at the moment, and we know not what form the bill will take when it reaches this chamber.

CORRECTION-MR. POULIOT


On the orders of the day: Mr. JEAN-FRANCOIS POULIOT (Tcmis-couata): On page 1742 of Hansard of yesterday a correction should be made. I am glad to interrupt my remarks here to welcome the hon. member for North Bruce (Mr. Malcolm) to the house. The passage in Hansard to which I refer reads: . Mr. Mackenzie King: But the trouble is that like everyone else we are getting impatient. Mr. Pouliot: Opinions are free, and the hon. member is not. That remark was not addressed to my right hon. leader. In the meantime the hon. member for North Renfrew (Mr. Cotnam) had risen and said, " This is of course your own opinion," and it was in answer to him that I said, " Opinions are free, and the hon. member is not."


TARIFF BOARD

REFERENCE TO SUPREME COURT OF RIGHT TO MAKE RULINGS ON POINTS OF LAW AND FIXING OF VALUES


On the orders of the day:


CON

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):

The hon. member for North

Waterloo (Mr. Euler) and the hon. member

for Shelburne-Yarmouth (Mr. Ralston) were advised by me the other day that I would inform them as to the order in council that had been prepared for the purpose of submitting certain questions relating to the jurisdiction of the tariff board, to the Supreme Court of Canada. The order in council has been prepared but has not yet received the approval of His Excellency or of his deputy and therefore I cannot lay it on the table today. But as soon as it has been approved a copy will be laid on the table, at least on Monday, and I may be able to-morrow to send a copy to the leader of the opposition (Mr. Mackenzie King) in the absence of the hon. member for North Waterloo and the hon. member for Shelburne-Yarmouth.

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Pensions and National Health. I have received from New Brunswick an inquiry whether there are any instructions and what they are in regard to prohibition of the importation of parrots.
