Mr. DOHERTY:

Just what is it that we can protect? They have not done anything towards getting a patent. I have a little difficulty in seeing how we would be justified in making a provision that would extend so far as to say that everybody who has been working in the expectation that he will eventually come to the position where he might apply for a patent is to be protected against the fact that we extend this period of time to those who already have made application. I do not see just what prejudice that man is suffering by the passing of this Bill.
