Mr. DUBUC:

These lines, which have been in existence for a number of years, are mostly on rivers which were regarded as not navigable, and it was therefore considered that special permission was not required. That has been contested of late, and it has been suggested that, no matter whether rivers are navigable or not, in order to cross them with transmission lines it is necessary to have special permission from Ottawa. That is why this bill has been introduced, although, as I have stated, these works were constructed a number of years ago.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Hon. R. B. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

I should like to ask the Minister of Finance if he is now in a position to inform us when he will bring down the budget. May I point out to him that we have almost reached the end of the fifth month of the present session and the third month of the present fiscahyear. The business interests and others in this country want to know what taxation position they have to face, and I think the budget should be brought down with the least possible delay.
