Clause 12 gives the board the power to make its bylaws. Can the minister say if it would be precluded from setting up 27507-3-163

Mr. Cresiohl:

Mr. Chairman, if hon. members think it is humorous, let them laugh. That is about the only thing they have done since parliament opened. May I point out that although amending this clause may delay matters somewhat, I would invite the minister's attention to the fact that if, after the word "proceedings," the clause had continued "including the establishment of advisory and other committees" established by the board, the clause would indicate very clearly that the board may establish bylaws for the regulation of its activities, just as the clause now reads, as well as for the regulation of committees of the board which may be established. But I would eliminate what I call an

[Mr. Crestohl.l

innocuous expression, namely "and generally for the conduct of its activities". All that the minister wants the clause to do is to give the board latitude to adopt bylaws for the regulation of its proceedings. That is what I think the committee would gladly grant, but not anything further than what is defined.

Mr. Crestohl:

Mr. Chairman, under this clause the board is given the latitude to make bylaws for the regulation of its proceedings "and generally for the conduct of its activities". I think that the words "and generally" contained in that phrase in the clause could be confusing. We have had debates in this house in the past in which I think the Prime Minister, at one time, said that we ought to review our statutes to see to what extent authority is given to various boards to make their own bylaws. Frequently when making their own bylaws boards have allowed themselves rather unusual latitude. In some cases

Atlantic Development Board boards have been established and made bylaws which provided that there shall be no appeal from their decisions, that their decisions could not be taken before the courts, for example, by way of a writ of prohibition. Probably their bylaws carry them a little too far. I was wondering just how far this rather innocuous statement can take this board, when we give it power to make bylaws generally for the conduct of its activities. If it was intended that the board may make bylaws for the regulation of its proceedings, then that is sufficient and would be acceptable to me. But to go beyond giving it the authority to make bylaws for the regulation of its proceedings is, I think, going far beyond what parliament intends a board to do.

Therefore, Mr. Chairman, I ask the minister to give some explanation to this committee of what is intended by the words "and generally make bylaws for the conduct of its activities".

Mr. Leon Crestohl (Cartier):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question to the Minister of Justice. Can the minister inform the house whether his department or his officials are studying a revision of the Bankruptcy Act of Canada, or whether submissions have been sent to them requesting either amendments to or a revision of the Bankruptcy Act?
