March 14, 1935 (17th Parliament, 6th Session)

CON

Richard Burpee Hanson (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

Subsection 2 of section 10 states that the regulations shall fix a maximum of additional hours. In studying that subsection I gave one interpretation; somebody else gave another and yesterday the hon. member for Gloucester (Mr. Yeniot) gave still another. We therefore decided that we would redraft this subsection in order to make it abundantly clear that it actually followed the wording of the convention. This was done for the purposes of clarification and not to limit or increase the scope of the section.
