Mr. BOTHWELL:

If I might interrupt my hon. friend at that point, this clause has been worded in this particular way because in certain provinces there are certain institutions, the inmates of which the provincial authorities feel should not be given this right. We worded the clause in this way, rather than make the prohibition apply in all the provinces as was done by the old act.
