Mr. DURANLEAU:

I believe the act states that any part of it may become effective after publication in the official gazette, and I believe requests to that effect have been received from pilots.

Mr. WOODSWORTH:

Surely the inspection of tackle and other like matters is not international and action in connection with them should not be held over until other nations may make decisions. Six or eight years ago I brought to the attention of the house conditions which existed in western ports. The municipalities apparently had no control over the inspection and we could not get any control because of this act which has been promised for so many years. I would ask the minister why that kind of thing should be held for international action.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

I have already told the committee that the legislation of other dominions does not affect such parts of the act as concern only our coasting trade, such as the inspection of tackle. It is simply a question of deciding which parts of the act should be put into force.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

As a matter of fact the question has been submitted to the Department of Justice as to which parts are not international in character and could be put into force now, and as soon as I have a report I intend to give effect to it and bring the facts before the house.
