Mr. BEAUBIEN:

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My reason for voting against this bill is this. The Minister of Justice said that these people had spent their money and that the custom of the house was to have such bills read the second time and sent to the committee on banking and commerce to be reviewed, so that its promoters might have an opportunity .to appear and state their case. But this is my objection-and I think I am in order in the statement I am about to make. How can I vote either for or against a bill I have never seen? Yet this house votes against the principle of allowing bills to be introduced. I do not see any consistency in such action.

Mr. BEAUBIEN:

May I rise to a point of order. I understand the motion is that the hon. member have leave to introduce the bill. That was the motion put to the house.

Mr. BEAUBIEN:

No doubt the first reading was carried, Mr. Speaker, but the principle is the same. Now, may I say that in my opinion we have too many of these loan companies who have gone about the country fleecing people who know nothing about finance. We have had such companies in Winnipeg. There was one music company that fleeced everyone it came in contact with; it had no other object than that. If you vote for the second reading of this bill you vote for the principle of it, as far as I understand the rules. If you refer the bill to a committee you are virtually saying, by a majority vote of this house, that you approve of the principle laid down in the bill, and I am opposed to it.
