BANKING AND COMMERCE-THIRD REPORT AND DRAFT BILL RESPECTING INTEREST ON SMALL LOANS


Mr. W. H. MOORE (Ontario) presented the third report of the standing committee on banking and commerce, together with a draft bill entitled, An Act respecting Interest on Small Loans. Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): This is a very lengthy report. I suggest that inasmuch as no action is proposed to be taken on it to-day we might dispense with the reading of it and let it appear in the votes and proceedings.

Mr. SLAGHT:

Mr. Speaker, this is a bill to amend the act of incorporation of the Mail Printing Company, which was enacted in 1880. The only amendment proposed is the substitution of "one hundred thousand" for "thirty thousand" in the clause in the original bill which provides that real estate held by the corporation at any one time shall not exceed in annual value the sum of thirty thousand dollars. By reason of the increase in value since 1880 and the new premises acquired by this corporation, they find it desirable to have the annual value of the real estate that they may hold increased to one hundred thousand dollars.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
