March 9, 1938 (18th Parliament, 3rd Session)

IND

Alan Webster Neill

Independent

Mr. NEILL:

This is a very simple bill, and framed in modest and very general terms. It does not discriminate against or specifically name any nation or any race. It proposes to make a small but, I think, a useful addition or amendment to section 3 of the Immigration Act. In order to facilitate, I trust, its passage through the house and to secure the support of the right hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett), I have followed the suggestion he made on a previous occasion in connection with another bill and have provided that it shall not come into force until the first day of July, 1939.

Topic:   IMMIGRATION ACT
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT OF PROVISION RESPECTING PROHIBITED CLASSES
