Hon. ALFRED DURANLEAU (Minister of Marine):
I desire to make a statement
with regard to insurance rates on the Hudson Bay route. The Imperial shipping committee, at their meeting held on Friday, May 19, decided to report that as the result of discussion between their chairman and the chairman of the joint hull committee, the rates and conditions governing insurance of hull and machinery of ships on the Hudson Bay route will continue for the
1933 season as they were in the 1932 season, except that minimum rates for suspending warranties will hold from August 10 to October 7, both dates inclusive, instead of to September 30. From October 8 to October 15, both dates inclusive, the rates will be increased as heretofore by 25 per cent. The full report of the Imperial shipping committee will be presented to the governments concerned.
