Independent

Mr. NEILL:

The rules do not at this stage require anything but a short statement of the purport of the bill, which is to bring the coastal shipping trade of Canada as regards routes, schedules and charges under the supervision of the board of railway commissioners in exactly the same way as that body now has control over the same items in connection with railways. In the bill "coastal trade" is defined to exclude operations on the great lakes, and there is also a provision that it shall not apply to vessels under twenty tons burden, in order to prevent small ferries operated by gasoline launches and the like, from being harassed by unnecessary restrictions.

On the second reading of the bill I shall endeavour to explain the reasons why the bill should become law.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

CANADIAN AND BRITISH INSURANCE COMPANIES ACT AMENDMENT


Mr. G. G. COOTE (Macleod) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 13, to amend the Canadian and British Insurance Companies Act, 1932. He said: The first four subsections of this proposed bill are the same as the provisions of section 180 of the old insurance act, chapter 101, Revised Statutes of Canada, 1927. These provisions would make it necessary for life insurance companies to maintain a policy in force as long as the cash surrender value of the policy is sufficient to cover the premiums shown to be due. It would also add a new subsection to control the rate of interest charged by insurance companies to policy holders. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.


FOREIGN INSURANCE COMPANIES


Mr. G. G. COOTE (Macleod) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 14, to amend the Foreign Insurance Companies Act, 1932. He said: The purpose of this bill is exactly as explained for the other bill. There are two insurance companies acts, one referring to foreign insurance companies and the other to Canadian and British companies, so that to effect the desired purpose for all life insurance companies it is necessary to introduce these two bills. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.


GENEVA CONVENTIONS


On the order for motions:


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) :

I stated yesterday that for the convenience of the members of the house the conventions referred to in the five resolutions which I submitted to the house would be printed in the orders of the day. I supplied the material from which it was to be done, but unfortunately by an error much more material was printed than is required. In fact a very large number of recommendations and matters of that sort which are unnecessary were included in the printing. Therefore I should like these resolutions to stand until to-morrow when the orders of the day will be revised and will include the printing of the conventions to which the resolutions refer.
