Mr. McCann:

Mr. Chairman, the whole purpose of the agreement is to avoid the evasion of taxes. The type of information which is set out in paragraph 2 of article XIX has never been sought under any other agreement. It is the type of information which would involve the disclosure of commercial or professional secrets. I imagine that would have to do with patents, constituent parts of manufactured chemicals and the like. . We have never been asked for that type of information.

Mr. McCann:

Mr. Chairman, this article in the treaty with the Netherlands provides for the exchange of information, information restricted to that which is necessary for the carrying out of the agreement, or for the prevention of fraud, or the avoidance of taxation. No information is to be exchanged which would disclose any trade secret or trade process or anything which was deemed to be against the public policy. Of course, if the country with which we have an agreement felt it would be against public policy to disclose certain information, that information could be withheld.

Mr. McCann:

The hon. gentleman is probably familiar with the case which is now before the courts in the United States, where there was objection by some individuals with regard to our taxation officials giving information on a company which is a Canadian incorporated company, information that we had in the taxation division.

But, as I pointed out in answer to a question in the house, we were within our powers and within our obligations to give that information when it was asked for by the department of internal revenue of the United States.
