Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GREEN:

So far the principle of the bill seems to me to be correct; but in part V we have a new principle, a second principle, which I doubt very much will help to stabilize the transport industry. It overrides the section I have just read. I would refer the minister to the first few lines of section 35, which is the first section dealing with agreed charges. It says:
Notwithstanding anything in the Railway Act, or in this act-
That, of course, would cover section 24.
-or in any other statute, a carrier may make such charge or charges for the transport of the goods of any shipper or for the transport of any part of his goods as may be agreed between the carrier and that shipper-
That is an entirely new principle.

Topic:   AUTHORITY TO CONTROL TRANSPORT OF PASSENGERS AND GOODS BY RAILWAYS, SHIPS AND AIRCRAFT
