Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BURY:

Yes, but it is not there. I
am suggesting that there should be in the bill a provision enabling the commission in such case to sue. If there is no such provision, I am very much afraid the commission will answer that under the legislation they have no power to do so. That provision might be added to subclause 2 of clause 31. After the provision in regard to fine or imprisonment there might be some such clause as this:
And in addition the commission shall be entitled to recover from the employer so in default, as a civil debt the amount of contribution so in default.
I submit that to the leader of the government.
