Mr. HOWE:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to clarify the present Toronto Harbour Commissioners Act. A doubt has been raised whether the act gives the harbour commission authority to refund its indebtedness. While there is no real doubt about it, the purpose of the bill is to make it clear that the commission has that right.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
