Over what value will the tax be on a silk overskirt?

Mr. LOGGIE:

I do not know how regulations can run counter to what is in the Act. I am not very sure that it is right to- go into a jewellery store and pay 10 per cent on a certain article on which in another store you would have to pay 20 per cent. The minister tells us the reason is that the jeweller is paying a 10 per cent tax on all his stock. I admit there is some force in that circumstance, but I confess that I do not like the idea of this differentiation. A merchant who may not have a jewellery establishment may have some items of jewellery among his stock, for instance, cigar-holders and pipes. A man buys a pipe in a certain store and pays 20 per cent duty on his purchase, while in the next store he may be able to purchase a similar pipe and pay only .10 per cent duty. I do not know whether this can be overcome, but I am just drawing it to the minister's attention in the hope that he may be able to do away with this anomaly.

Mr. LOGGIE:

It seems to me that some provision should be made to meet the case of a firm engaged in both the wholesale and the retail business, which imports goods, some of them for their wholesale branch and some for their retail branch. Would it be provided that the wholesale department might charge the one per cent to the retail department and pay into the treasury on receipt of the goods only one per cent? How could that condition be met?

Mr. DOGGIE:

Before the item carries. Regarding snowshoes, I would like to remind the minister that snowshoes are used by lumbermen in a very large way, and I wonder if it is the intention to relieve them from the tax.

Mr. LOGGIE:

As I understand the minister's motive it is that there should be no tax on lumbermen's boots. I am sure he understands that in the winter season the most of the boots that are worn by the men in the woods are larrikins, and I should say they would be less in height than the boots indicated in the resolution. If they were included it would only be in the event of their being over $9. In that case there will be no danger of larrikins being included because they are less than $9 in price, and so the tax would not be applicable to them.
