Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

There has been no change in regard to the residence qualification as it appears in the statute to-day. The matter is under consideration. I mean to say that no decision has been made. So far as the residential qualification is concerned, there is no provision for any change, but if these relief camps are going to be in existence for some time, some#consideration will probably have to be given to that subject.

Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in.

Mr. REID:

I thought it was the understanding that clauses on which there may be a great deal of contention would be allowed to stand.

Mr. BENNETT:

But these are only definitions, they have no substantive effect. The rest of the bill depends on the definition given to these words.
