Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CAHAN:

This subsection brings up another matter. As a corporate body the board may sue and be sued, but in my opinion other provisions of the act are inconsistent. Nevertheless I assume that all real and personal property of which the board is in possession and is operating will be vested in his majesty. If so the board will have no property with which to respond to its own liabilities or to any judgment obtained against it. I have no objection to the provision that the board shall have capacity to sue and be sued, but in view of subsequent provisions suit against the board may have very little effect.
