Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to inform the house that the following message has been received from the Senate:

Ordered' that a message be sent to the House of 'Commons to acquaint that house that the Senate do insist upon its first amendment to Bill No. 79, an act to amend the Combines Investigation Act, to which the House of Commons has disagreed, for the following reasons:-That the whole intent and purpose and letter of the Combines Investigation Act has to do with the restriction of trade and commerce, and the bill in many other particulars shows that it is carefully and strictly following out that purpose. It deviated from it only in this one point. Its constitutional justification is trade' and commerce.

And that the Senate do not insist upon its third amendment to which the House of Commons has disagreed.

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to inform the house that a message has been received from the Senate with respect to Bill No. 86, as follows:

(1) That in respect of section 14 the Senate agrees to the insertion of the word "unanimous" between the word "the" and the word "opinion."

(2) That the Senate does not insist on the amendment made to section 20 of the bill, but strikes out section 20 and substitutes therefor the following in lieu thereof:

"20. The commission shall receive complaints respecting unfair trade practices and may investigate the same and, either before or after an investigation, if of opinion that the practice complained of constitutes an offence against any dominion law prohibiting unfair trade practices, may communicate the complaint and such

Prorogation

evidence, if any, in support thereof as is in the possession of the commission to the attorney general of Canada with a recommendation that all persons who are parties or privies to such offence be prosecuted for violation of the applicable act. The attorney general of Canada, if he concurs in such recommendation may refer it with such complaint and such evidence, if any, either to the Director of Public Prosecutions or to the attorney general of the province *nothin which the offence is alleged to have been committed for such action as may seem to be appropriate in the circumstances."

(3) That the Senate does not insist on its amendment at the end of line 29 in section 21.

(4) That the Senate does not insist on its amendment new section 28.

_ (5) That the Senate does insist on the deletion of section 26 for the reason that said section contemplates a revision of dominion company issues in certain cases by the Dominion Trade and Industry Commission and that consequently sucli commission would require a staff of competent experts in this special line to intelligently discharge their duties and that in this regard the commission would become a duplication of provincial commissions already created for similar purposes and clothed with ample power to protect the public in respect of these matters.

Further, the Senate is of opinion that the exercise or non-exercise of the right on the part of the Secretary of State to have such issues reviewed, or not have them reviewed, would be regarded by the public as the taking of responsibility by the Secretary of State for the capital structures of companies no matter what safeguards or precautionary provisions are inserted, and that this is most undesirable.
