Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

If my

right hon. friend was a practical business man, which he is not, he would know that a bill of this character could not be put into force immediately upon assent.

Then why did my hon. friend not have that provision in the bill; why does he come along with his amendment now?

I should like to ask the

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

If the

hon. gentleman would be good enough to read the definition of industrial undertaking

as given in section 2, I am sure he could answer his own question. It applies to the industrial life of the country and does not apply to what my hon. friend has referred to.

Yes. Objection was taken to the amendment yesterday by the hon. member for East Hamilton (Mr. Mitchell) and we wish to study the matter carefully. It is involved and the ramifications are very great. We do not want to do injustice to anyone.
