Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to inform the house that the following message has been received from the Senate:
Ordered' that a message be sent to the House of 'Commons to acquaint that house that the Senate do insist upon its first amendment to Bill No. 79, an act to amend the Combines Investigation Act, to which the House of Commons has disagreed, for the following reasons:-That the whole intent and purpose and letter of the Combines Investigation Act has to do with the restriction of trade and commerce, and the bill in many other particulars shows that it is carefully and strictly following out that purpose. It deviated from it only in this one point. Its constitutional justification is trade' and commerce.
And that the Senate do not insist upon its third amendment to which the House of Commons has disagreed.
