April 3, 1967

Mr. Favreau:

Of course they will have the opportunity. Especially now that the question has been asked, I assume the hon. gentleman is aware of some who want to make representations, so I will see to it that a proper occasion is afforded.

Hon. Guy Favreau (President of the Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, I must say that this legislation is still being considered in the light of the eventual amendment of other related acts, and no final decision has been taken at the moment.

Hon. Guy Favreau (President of the Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, that question concerns my department and notice of it was referred to me by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General (Mr. Cardin).

Without necessarily accepting to its full extent the assertion made in the first part of the question, I must say that all representations, all recommendations are under constant study by the minister as well as by his officials and special advisers.

In that respect, I must remind the house that a three-member committee has been appointed and that it is now carrying out an active study of the economic, social and legal aspects of the Bankruptcy Act.

Inquiries of the Ministry I am confident that as soon as I get that report I will be in a position to make all the recommendations I deem appropriate or to refer all committee recommendations, if I feel that is necessary.

Hon. Guy Favreau (President of the Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to thank my hon. friend for having given me due notice of his intention to put this question. The answer is no, but I think it requires a very short explanation.

The superintendent of bankruptcy, in cooperation with the Department of Justice, has prepared draft rules and forms for the purpose of part X, and these draft rules and forms have been sent to the provincial authorities in Manitoba for their comments. As soon as these draft rules and forms are accepted by the provincial authorities they will be submitted to the governor in council.

We have not as yet received a request from the lieutenant governor in council of the province of Manitoba pursuant to section 198 of the Bankruptcy Act that part X be proclaimed by the governor in council to be in force in that province. My understanding is that before making such a request, the provincial authorities wanted to satisfy themselves that the proposed rules and forms for part X would make the legislation operational.
