Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

"Such certificates" appears in my copy-there is an "s" added, but there may not be in the hon. gentleman's copy. I would not like to express an opinion on the point the hon. gentleman raises, because the law of the province would govern with respect to that; it would be a matter purely of provincial law. In general my answer would be no, for it is essential that there should be an affidavit that there is a debt due by the board to the individual in question and it could not in my opinion be properly affirmed that there was a debt due under the circumstances indicated. But each province has its own law governing the question of garnishees, and I would not care to express a definite opinion upon the point.
