I have received a communication from the Reverend Albert Hinton, pastor of the Lilly Memorial Church, which is the United, Church at Pointe Claire, and also of the United Church of Canada, at Beaurepaire, both in the

county of Jacques-Cartier, province of Quebec, enclosing a petition praying that the government put into effect an embargo against the shipment of war materials to Japan. I desire to lay this petition before the house.

SUPREME COURT ACT

APPEALS TO PRIVY COUNCIL-REPRINTING OF BILL NO. 9 WITH CERTAIN MODIFICATIONS


On the order for motions:


CON

Charles Hazlitt Cahan

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. C. H. CAHAN (St. Lawrence-St. George):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to mention a matter which I think will require the unanimous consent of the house. The first clause of the first section of Bill No. 9, to amend the Supreme Court Act, is deemed by the officials of the Department of Justice to be inadequate, as it is now phrased, to cover the suggestions made by the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe) during the discussion on a similar bill at the last session of parliament. I had endeavoured to cover those suggestions, but the officials think that the words I have used are not sufficiently clear and comprehensive. I have consulted with the clerk of the house who is of the opinion that before second reading the bill might be reprinted in due course. I thought I had better mention it to the house and ask leave to have the bill reprinted, with the modifications deemed necessary by the officials of the Department of Justice, in order to bring its items fully, definitely and concisely before the house on the second reading. There are no changes in the explanatory notes.
