New Democratic Party

Mr. Knowles:

Mr. Chairman, the printed draft copy of the bill I have has written in it "49-see clause 45". There is nothing in my copy to indicate what clause 49 actually says. May I ask whether it is the same as clause 45? After all, if wc are passing something it should be before us in written form. I had to write out my amendments. What is clause 45?

Mr. Knowles:

Mr. Chairman, may I ask whether the copy you have at the table has anything in it for clause 49? Obviously the copy I have is incomplete. Has anybody a copy that has anything other than just "see clause 45"?

The Chairman:

In response to the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre, the copy before me has clause 49 which reads as follows:

Regulations or amendments thereto made pursuant to the said act that are directly related to the application of the said act, as amended by this act, may be made applicable on or after July I, 1980.

Does that answer the hon. member's question?

Mr. Knowles:

It does, Mr. Chairman. I am glad to know it is there. Some members have sent me copies of the bill which have clause 49. The copy I have, which was given to me this morning-I still have it and can show it to you to indicate that I was not fooling-has no clause 49 in it. If the copy you have and that you initial has in it the words you have read, 1 am satisfied.

Mr. MacDonald:

I just want to say, Mr. Chairman, that this is an amended copy. The previous one to which the hon. member was referring does not have that clause, but it is in this copy; you have read it and I hope that clarifies the matter.

Mr. Benjamin:

Mr. Chairman, before we complete committee stage I am wondering whether the minister will reply to my query in respect of clause 2 regarding what consideration or action the government is prepared to take to provide recognition of and entitlement to the veterans of the Mackenzie-Papineau battalion in the Spanish civil war?
