Mr. MacLENNAN:

I am more apprehensive of the power placed in the hands of six persons under section 14. Possibly six competitors of some business firm may make application; then, by section 15, this preliminary inquiry must be instituted. The hon. member for Queens-Lunenburg (Mr Kinley) said that there ought to be a good deal of circumspection in regard to starting an inquiry into anyone's business. Suppose nothing detrimental to the public was found, the very fact of an inquiry being started does not look well for a firm or corporation. I prefer that the minister or someone responsible to the people should start an investigation rather than some six men who possibly are not responsible.

Mr. MacLENNAN:

Is the bill wide enough to cover enlistment in the Spanish civil war? I can see that it would prevent persons from enlisting on the side of the so-called rebels, but I cannot see that it would prevent enlistment to serve the government of Spain, if there is such a thing.
