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

Unionist

Mr. DOHERTY:

I beg to move that
section 2 be dropped. The provision was proposed at the instance of the municipal authorities of Montreal. I have had communications from the Attorney General of the province in which he enters objection to the passing of the clause. I do not think it would be proper for us to pass it until these two authorities who are directly concerned in it have come to a conclusion.
Section dropped.
On section 3-provision respecting instructions to jury in cases of seducing girls between 16 and 18, seducing female employees, carnally knowing girls between 14 and 16. *
