Mr. PUGSLEY:

The present law does
not inflict any special hardship. It provides that Chinese youths coming to Canada for the purpose of obtaining an education, attending a university or other educational institution approved by the minister, after their studies have been concluded can make an application and get back a refund of the $500 head tax which they paid on entering the country. No strong complaint has been raised against that.

Topic:   CHINESE IMMIGRATION BILL.
