Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

This will not necessarily dispense with that. I think when the bill is distributed my hon. friend will see that the whole procedure will now be under the control of Canada. The great seal of Canada will be used, or another seal or signet may be used, but under the instructions of the Canadian parliament.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Mr. DUNNING:

I should like to try to answer this question orally, although I have some doubt whether it is a proper one, because in asking the question an attempt is made to state an alleged fact. As I think is well known, the insurance statutes of Canada do not give to the government as such any control over life insurance premiums. My information, however, is that in recent years premiums have tended to decline rather than increase.
