Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Could the right hon. gentlemen inform the house if the estimates which he has just brought down will conclude those that will be presented to the house at this session or will there be still further supplementaries?

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

I had in mind to say to my right hon. friend a moment ago that we have no desire on this side of the house to delay the proceedings, but I do not think we ought to allow the government to get away with all the main estimates of the session until we have some definite understanding as to the time the session is to conclude. Perhaps my right hon. friend will let the bill stand at this stage and possibly before another sitting we can have an understanding as to further measures that will have to be considered before parliament prorogues.

COMPANIES ACT, 1934, AMENDMENT


The house resumed from Friday, June 21, consideration in committee of bill' No. 85, to amend the Companies Act, 1934-Mr. Cahan-Mr. Smith (Cumberland) in the chair. On section 5-Consideration for any shares allotted must be adequate. Companies Act Amendment


CON

Charles Hazlitt Cahan (Secretary of State of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. C. H. CAHAN (Secretary of State):

We have had considerable discussion with regard to section 5 of the bill and I am going to suggest that the section be amended by striking out subsection 9 and substituting the following therefor:

(9) Shares in the capital stock of the company having a nominal or par value shall not be issued as fully paid except for a consideration payable in cash to the total nominal amount of the shares so issued or for a consideration payable in property or services which in all the circumstances of the transaction may justly be deemed adequate consideration therefor:

Then the latter part of the clause remains as it is now:

Provided that this subsection shall not apply to any mining company..

And so on.

Mr. BOTHWELL:

What effect will that have on the no par value shares? In the old subsection 9 which is being repealed reference is made to shares, whether common pr preferred, or whether with or without nominal or par value. This new amendment simply deals with shares having par value,. What effect has it on the no par value shares?

Mr. CAHAN:

This does not apply to no par value shares because under the act as it now stands no par value shares are issued for a consideration to be fixed by the board of directors. There is a difference between no par value and par value shares; par value shares must be paid up in cash or the equivalent. All the no par value share gives is a pro rata interest in the property of the company.
