Mr. Applewhaiie:

Mr. Chairman, this is the pertinent section of the bill. I should like to make some brief observations and ask one question.

I have received from the Pacific coast representations which indicate that the industry as a whole not only welcomes this bill but welcomes also the regulations which will be adopted thereunder. Bearing in mind that, speaking roughly, the industry consists of two main parts, namely, the fishermen, and the fish houses and processing plants, may we have the assurance from the minister that when the regulations under this provision are being prepared, both sections of the industry will be given ample opportunity to make recommendations and representations with regard thereto? I am not suggesting for one moment that the government should turn over to the industry its power to make regulations. I am asking that, with a view to the drafting of workable and practicable regulations, consideration be given to both branches of the industry, so that we may have the assurance that the regulations will be based upon commercial standards and not solely upon laboratory, abstract and scientific principles. We want the assurance that they will be workable and devised for the protection of the industry as well as of the consuming public, either in this country or, as in this instance, the country to which the goods are exported.

I can assure the minister that under these circumstances he nfill find in all branches of

the industry on the Pacific coast that his act and the regulations will be lived up to in spirit and to the letter.

Mr. Applewhaite:

It would appear from the questions that have been asked during the last few minutes that there is some criticism of the increase in this item. I would suggest that the only criticism which should be made is that, instead of increasing ten times it should have increased twenty or thirty. Hon. members should know that for many years such organizations as the Daughters of the Empire have been urging that we put on something in the nature of a program of citizenship education. Now, economy is all right in its way, but I submit there is little economy in cheeseparing on the education of our new citizens.

Mr. Applewhaite:

I had no intention of entering the discussion on this resolution, but if the department gives favourable consideration to the request which has been put forward, and perhaps with justification, for those who are fortunate enough to be able to travel via ambulance, will they also kindly remember the transportation charges which have to be met in a district such as mine where a man has to hire a plane and travel 500 or 600 miles to reach a doctor. If he does not do that, he has to wait until the following spring. This is a major item of expense, and it is an item which may be argued at considerable length. I do not intend to hold up the committee for any length of time, but I do not intend to let the people who are fortunate enough to be able to ride in an ambulance at a cost of $5 or $10 go to the department with that request and have it granted, without some consideration being given to those people who have to hire an aeroplane, which is an item of real expense.

Would he be kind enough to explain to us the connection between the subjects which he is dealing with and the inspection of fish and marine plants?
