INTRODUCTION OP BILL


Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of Trade and Commerce) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 89. respecting a certain provisional trade agreement between Canada and Germany. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.


CANADA-URUGUAY TRADE AGREEMENT


Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of Trade and Commerce) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 86, respecting a certain trade agreement between Canada and Uruguay. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.


JUDGES ACT AMENDMENT


Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Broadview) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 87, to amend the Judges Act (privy council appeals). He said: This bill adds a clause to the Judges Act. The judges appointed under this act are federal judicial officers and are bound by the provisions of the act. The bill provides that all such judges, whether appointed or to be appointed, shall in their decisions be bound by the decisions of the judicial committee of the privy council, or if a matter before them does not go that far, by the court of final adjudication. It is based on the principle that under our constitution, by British law the courts are subservient to the legislature, and that parliament makes the law and judges interpret it. The bill provides that this is to be the law for Canada, notwithstanding any law, custom, usage or doctrine of law to the contrary. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.


DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT

PROVISION TO CONSOLIDATE STORES DEPOTS AND TO SIMPLIFY PURCHASING


Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Transport) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 88, respecting Department of Transport stores. He said: Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to provide the Department of Transport with facilities for the consolidation of stores and stores depots and a simplified stores and purchasing control similar in effect to the facilities provided for the king's printer under section 3S of the Public Printing and Stationery Act as amended by chapter 5, statutes of 1928. At the present time the Department of Transport have some sixty stores depots in Canada, of which as many as three are in the same city. In a single stores depot it is necessary to keep as many as three or four separate stocks. The net result is that, with purchases of some three million dollars per annum, our stores to-day have an inventory of a million and a half dollars, which of course is far in excess of the proper amount. The passage of this bill will simplify the bookkeeping, considerably reduce the staff required to attend to these stores, and make for a much more efficient management. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time. QUESTIONS (Questions answered orally are indicated by an asterisk.)
