Charles Joseph Doherty (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DOHERTY:

I have not before me
the exact text of that Act, but it seems to me that we are falling back into a discussion of the Act that was passed. If that Act, as passed, does not cover the case in its terms-and I am free to admit that my impression at this moment is that it does not-this, act will not produce the necessity of labelling in that particular case. But the Act, as it is passed, will apply to all sending of liquor from one province into another when in the province there is any prohibitory law. I am not quite certain whether it says any provincial prohibitory law or simply any prohibitory law.
