Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPROULE.

If this clause is not amended will it permit what the right hon. Prime Minister (Sir Wilfrid Laurier) says he desires to leave within the provisions of the law, that is to leave it open to any person to bring in labour of a technical sort, persons specially fitted for doing some particular kind of work, fitting up machinery, or running certain kinds of machinery ? If this clause is left as it is, the importation of labour of any kind will be prohibited. I take it that if this clause is left as it is and if a new clause is put in, it would be in conflict with this one.
