Mr. Harley:

I should like to speak on this clause and follow up the discussion we had earlier on clause 2 regarding the removal of drugs from the market. As the minister has pointed out, a drug will be removed from the market by an order in council which will place it on schedule H. This is once again government by order in council and it would be much more effective to have the removing clause right in the proposed legislation. Also it is a little ambiguous here as to whether schedule H would give the department the right to go in and to seize supplies or investigate them.

As has been pointed out by the hon. member for Quebec-Montmorency we also have to consider drugs that are stored and possibly used for experimental purposes.

To try to get around this I move:

That section 3 of the bill be amended-

(a) by deleting therefrom at the end of line 23, the word "and";

(b) by inserting therein at the end of line 25, the word "and"; and

(c) by adding thereto after subclause (ii) the following:

" (iii) the removal from physicians, dentists, pharmacists or veterinary surgeons of any supplies of new drugs found harmful by the food and drug directorate."

I submit that this amendment would make it much more effective to remove drugs, and the government would not have to rely on orders in council for their removal.

Mr. Harley:

Mr. Chairman, on clause 2 I should like to propose an amendment. The amendment deals with the definition of "drug", which definition was read to the house a moment ago by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre. According to the definition, "drug" includes "any substance or mixture of substances used in the treatment", and it goes on in great detail which I shall not repeat. We wish to add this clause the words "or substance", so that the definition would then include any substance that naturally occurs and one that is not manufactured or necessarily sold or represented as any of the matters mentioned. I am thinking of naturally occurring substances which under certain circumstances could be poisonous. I am thinking specifically of jequirity beans, which have been mentioned in this house on previous occasions. Therefore I should like to move:

That clause 2 of the bill be amended by Inserting after the word "drug" in line 13 thereof the words "or substance".

Mr. Harley:

In view of the recommendations of all other parties in the house, is the minister prepared to send the bill to a special committee?

Mr. Harley:

Would this apply only to drugs such as L.S.D.? What about the remainder of drugs and their distribution generally?
