The difficulty is that, as hon. members from British Columbia are aware, licenses are being held up. It was in order to overcome the difficulty that we were anxious to pass this legislation. However, if hon. gentlemen object I am not going to press the matter. The measure is entirely in the interests of residents in the railway belt of British Columbia; it does not affect any other part of the province.
