Mr. DAVIS:

Is there not also an ambiguity about the proviso which reads:

That all goods imported into Canada after the date of the coming into force of this section which do not comply with the foregoing requirements-

and so on. Well, there are two requirements, and one is that goods capable of toeing stamped sfhall toe stamped. But goods which are not capable of being stamped are classed under this proviso. Therefore I think the wording of the proviso should toe made clearer than it now is. Otherwise it would, in my opinion, preclude all goods whether they were stamped or whether they were not stamped, whether they were capable of being stamped Or incapable of being stamped.

Mr. DAVIS:

I submit that the negative feature in this adds nothing to the definition. In that lies the difficulty, and the provision would be very much clearer if the words "not amounting to imbecility" were struck out. The provision would then read:

"feeble-minded persons" means persons In whose case there exists from birth or from an early age mental defectiveness so pronounced that they require care, supervision and control for their own protection or for the protection of others.

Mr. DAVIS:

I think that the Chairman will be amused when I point out to him the fact that he has been the chairman of a committee on the fuel question which has been endeavouring to ascertain the cost of the production of coal and other fuels in Canada. The committee has been thus engaged for some weeks, and we are

quietly told by the minister now that he has the machinery by which he can determine, in relation to goods which are in a more advanced state of manufacture than coal, the cost of production in the United States.
