CUSTOMS TARIFF


Hon. R. C. MATTHEWS (Minister of National Revenue) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 125, to amend the Customs Tariff. He said: I beg to ask leave to introduce a short bill, a bill to amend section 6 of the customs tariff, by adding a new subsection to be called subsection 2A, by which the governor in council may order that excise duties or excise taxes may be disregarded in estimating the market value for purposes of special or dumping duties on goods imported from certain specified countries, which are entitled to entry under the general tariff.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

This is the complementary measure, and unless it was passed the bill which was introduced yesterday and which stands on the order paper would not effect the purposes intended. This is a complementary section in the customs tariff to the amendment made in the Customs Act.

PRIVILEGE-MR. MULLINS


On the orders of the day:


CON

Henry Alfred Mullins

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. H. A. MULLINS (Marquette):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. The Toronto Globe of Wednesday, June 27, carries the following headline: "Nickle exposes Cook's Tour prison visit," and my name appears throughout the article. I wish to say that I was not conducted on a Cook's tour. I had my perfect freedom inside the walls of the penitentiary. Further I want to say the article suggests that I am related to General Ormond. I deny that I am in any way related to him, and I wish to make that denial on the floor of this house. The statement I made on the floor of the house when on a former occasion the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Woodsworth) was speaking, in regard to dishes which were used, was and is absolutely correct.
