Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

Mr. Speaker, the law at present in force in Canada dealing with official secrets is The Official Secrets Act. which is an imperial act. This act, passed in 1911, is in its terms made applicable to and has been the law of Canada. Since it was passed amendments have been made, more particularly by the Official Secrets Act of 1920, -which is not applicable to Canada. The purpose of the bill is to consolidate the two acts and, by an act of the parliament of Canada, make them the law of this country.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
