Mr. LOGGIE:

Would the minister not

consider making that $1? The merchants are doing this work gratuitously for the Government and if $1 would serve the purpose it seems to me it would be just as well as to ask for $2.

Mr. LOGGIE:

Never mind how I know. I do not think the retail trade can sell silk hose to-day that will give reasonable satisfaction at less than $3 to $3.50 per pair. There is no economy in buying silk hose at $2 per pair, because they have not the required lasting qualities.

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:

Before this item carries

I would like to ask the minister what provision is made either in the resolutions introduced at the time of the Budget Speech, or in the amendments of which notice has been given regarding women's silk skirts or silk coats? I understand silk skirts will be subject to a tax on the full amount of $15 although there seems to be no amendment before the House in that regard at the present time. I also infer that the item "dresses, women's and misses', in excess of $45 each" has been cut out altogether.
