Mr. Applewhaiie:

I am not familiar with the wording of the amendment, because I have not seen it, and I have not been able to follow it. But the remarks I have to make are based on the old section, and I ask the minister if he will follow me on the old section and then answer my question.

The old section provides for certain deduction privileges for corporations or associations, syndicates and partnerships in connection with drilling for natural gas. The old section then goes on to allow deductions for corporations only in connection with the mineral mining industry. Bearing in mind the fact that in at least some parts of the country a great deal of mineral exploration is done by syndicates and partnerships and not by corporations, I should like to ask the minister whether the same privilege should not be [DOT]extended to syndicates and partnerships that has been extended to corporations.

Mr. Applewhaite:

That would depend on whether it is the desire to conclude the debate today, in which case it would not be available. If the debate is to be adjourned, however, it would be a great help if it could be distributed.

Mr. Applewhaite:

I believe all hon. members have had requests from many organizations for information, and if as soon as possible the bill in its final form could be made available for distribution, it would be a great help.

Mr. Applewhaiie:

For the information of hon. members generally, I should like to ask whether it is the intention to reprint the bill with the proposed amendment and distribute it so that we will not have to wait until the statutes are printed in order to have copies for distribution.

December 2, 1949

Mr. Applewhaiie:

I think it is my duty to the people of northern British Columbia whom I represent to support the move for a separate department of mines. Prior to the last war it was a common thing-I was going to say it was a popular pastime, but I do not want to be facetious-for organizations interested in mining to pass and send to Ottawa resolutions requesting this government to set up a department of mines under a minister who would have no other responsibility.

I would suggest to the opposition that the importance of the work a government department can do is not necessarily to be judged entirely by the number of employees it may have on its pay roll, but rather on the results it may achieve. Considering the fact that we have responsibility for geological surveys, and that mining is a matter of nation-wide concern, I think this department with its own minister is definitely justified. Where I shall be opposing the Prime Minister is when he endeavours, as I hope he will not, to saddle the minister of mines with several other departments. I can assure the house that if the federal department of mines does the job which it is expected to do, and which is there for it to do, the expenditure will be amply justified and the minister will be a busy man.
