Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

I did not catch exactly the nature of the report. Am I to understand that the proceedings which it is

intended to print are only those concerning the application for the incorporation of the Alberta bank and nothing else? Is that the meaning of the report?

Mr. KINLEY:

We are asking concurrence to-day in order to be ready to take up the Alberta bank bill on Tuesday. I think the motion for printing covers all the proceedings of the committee in that regard.

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

I have a copy of the report now and I find that my impression was correct. The report states:

-that it be empowered to print five hundred copies in English and two hundred copies in French of the minutes of proceedings and evidence in relation to the subject matter of bill No. 26, an act to incorporate the Alberta provincial bank.

I believe that bears out what I said, but I wanted to be certain.

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of National War Services; Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

The bill does not make any important change in the act introduced last year. Among other things the Cheese and Cheese Factory Act made provision for the placing in cheese factories of storage rooms equipped with cold storage. During the year we were advised by the Department of Justice that a proper interpretation of the measure would make it possible to do a part of the work in a given year, namely to put in insulation, as apart from machinery equipment. Towards the end of the season, however, some doubt was raised as to the legality of this procedure, and the present amendment is to cover the point so that such operations may be legal.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
