Mr. CARVELL:

I was in error in moving to insert the word " incorporated " in sections 11, 12 and 13. They had better be left as they are, as there might he less danger of confusion. Chapter 20 of the Act of 1918 provides the qualifications entitling a woman to vote. She must be a British subject, twenty-one years of age, possessing the qualifications necessary, and for the purpose of the Act shall be deemed a British (Subject, etc. There is a provision that she must obtain a certificate from a judge of a court of record stating that she possesses qualifications which would entitle her to naturalization. In this Bill we are going over the same thing providing qualifications for the woman voter, using different language. I move that we add a new section 3 to the Bill as follows:

3. In the case of such a bye-eleotion, clause (c) of subsection 2 of section 1 of Chapter 20 of the Acts of 1918, an Act to confer the Electoral Franchise on Women, shall not apply.

Mr. OARVELL:

I assure my hon. friend that we are preserving the old law as it has been on the statute book practically since Confederation. We are not working under the War-time Elections Act-I would hope not, too. We are getting back to the old law under which notices must be given and such procedure has as my hon. friend has been used to all his lifetime.
