Mr. CEOWE:

Does the minister intend

to insert a clause, or clauses, dealing with Chinese and Japanese immigration. I understand there is an agreement with the Japanese Government in reference to a certain number of Japanese labourers coming info Canada every year, and that there is a separate Act dealing with Chinese immigration. I think that both Japanese and Chinese immigration should be dealt with in this Act. The matter should be consolidated under one Act. If that were done it would be far easier to handle.

Mr. CROWE:

Is it the intention of the

Government to establish any of these hydroplane stations in British Columbia for the protection of the Pacific coast?

Mr: CARVELL: I am not able to state the policy of the Government on such an important matter. During the war, in conjunction with the United States authorities, it was decided to establish these two stations on the Atlantic coast and they were in course of construction when the armistice was signed. We did not consider that there was any danger at that time on the Pacific coast.

Mr. CROWE:

I do not know anything about the Bill before the House, but I know several of these gentlemen, and I can vouch .for them. Mr. Creelman is a large contractor in Vancouver, a very wealthy man. Mr. Wood is a man of A1 standing. Mr. Durkee is in the jewellery business, but I do not know what standing he has. Mr. P. F. Wright is in the furniture business. I can vouch for three of these gentlemen;

the other two I cannot vouch for because I do not know them.
