I think it is just as well to allow this bill, which is only seeking to repeal another act, receive its first reading. Never did a government object to the first reading of a bill except when the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) was Prime Minister. I hope my hon. friend the Minister of Justice has no objection to the first reading being given.
Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East); I have no objection. The hon. member has a right to introduce it, but it is useless.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
