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

Mr. Speaker, you have just read a message from the Senate indicating that Bill Letter E of the Senate relating to shipping has been passed by the Senate. We were unable to complete the printing of it by Friday night, and as the bill is now transmitted to the house I would move, with the permission of the house, that standing order 22, which provides that bills originating in the Senate and sent to this house for concurrence shall be placed for first reading on the order paper under the heading "routine proceedings," immediately after "introduction of bills," be suspended for this sitting and that the bill be placed on the order paper so that it may be read the first time this afternoon. I will write the motion presently. I have just heard

the message read from the Senate and I was not sure until a few minutes ago that it would come to us this afternoon.

Alfred Duranleau (Minister of Fisheries; Minister of Marine)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DURANLEAU:

On this reading I do not intend to go further than to say that this measure is a complete revision of our Canadian laws respecting shipping. It has been framed in the light of the statute of Westminster and of the agreement with the other dominions as to uniformity in shipping laws, and also in the light of our Canadian laws, so as to give Canada a full power over all Canadian ships no matter where they might be and over other British or foreign ships within Canadian territory. I intend to make a complete statement on the second reading.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

1. Miss Lela Marian Wood.

2, 3 and 4. According to a statement made by the postmistress on the 3rd March, 1931, she was bom at Britton, South Dakota, U.S.A., on the 26th February, 1907, and became a British subject when her father was naturalized. The postmistress states that she is the daughter of Edwin Wood. The records of the Department of the Secretary of State disclose that Edwin Wood, formerly of Britton, South Dakota, was naturalized at Weyburn, Saskatchewan, on 15th January, 1917, under the Naturalization Act, R.S.C. 1906, chapter 77. By the provisions of that act, all his minor children who were residing with him in Canada are deemed to be naturalized British subjects.
