Mr. REID:

The purpose of the bill is twofold. First, it seeks the elimination of purse seines in the waters adjacent to the mouth of the Fraser river, and, second, it is concerned with the preservation of the livelihood of gill net fishermen of the Fraser river. It is the same bill as was introduced last year and the year before.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Mr. HOWE:

The purpose of the bill is to terminate the present form of administration of the Canadian National Railways, provided under authority of the 1933 legislation, and to substitute therefor administration by a board of directors to be appointed by the governor in council. This is the measure foreshadowed in the speech from the throne when intimation was given that legislation respecting the Canadian National Railways would be sought which would serve to confer a greater measure of governmental authority and responsibility to parliament.

Motion agreed to and bill read the firet time.

1. No systematic patrol of the north side of the Baie de Chaleur was made by any vessel of the preventive service of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 1934 but when information was received from the land forces, occasional patrols by cruisers on duty in the gulf and elsewhere, were made along the north shore of the Baie de Chaleur. The Vigil and Beebe, which were based on Cara-quet, N.B., and Shippigan, N.B., respectively, also made occasional trips along the north shore of the Baie de Chaleur in 1934.

2. Answered by No. 1.

3. Inasmuch as all patrols on the north shore of the Baie de Chaleur in 1934 were only occasional, in the circumstances already related, it would be difficult to compute the cost of the few hours entailed for the patrols made by these vessels, as it was taken as a part of the daily routine, irrespective of where they were based.
