Unionist (Liberal)

Mr. CARVELL:

That is the point at issue. I have not studied it closely, but I know generally what the situation is. The case is under preparation by the department to be tested out in the courts, and when the case is decided we shall know what the court says, at all events. I am afraid the decision of Professor Prince is not of very much assistance to us when a wharf is in question, because while a wharf may have claws to fasten it to the ground, it could hardly be construed as an animal.
