Hon. RAYMOND PREFONTAINE (Minister of Marine and Fisheries).

This Bill is

to replace Bill (No. 38), which has been withdrawn. The first Bill contained only one clause, and met with a good deal of objection, as it did not provide for certain eventualities. This Bill covers entirely the ground for which the measure was asked by the shipping interests of British Columbia. I could not explain the Bill better than it explains itself.

Mr. PREFONTAINE.

The first Bill meant simply that the dispositions of the Seamen's Act did not apply to the province of British Columbia, without giving further explanations. This Bill gives all the explanations and the way in which the measure will be acted upon.

Mr. PREFONTAINE.

It is intended to establish a rate of fees approved by the Governor in Council which shall not be exceeded. Except for that, of course, a man will be free to make his own agreement.
