Mr. Hacketi:

The minister will remember that last year a statute was passed which lifted from the Canada Shipping Act some seventy-odd sections, many of which had to do with the safety of crew and passengers. I am referring in particular to the qualification of officers, provisions with respect to the loading of ships, and things of that nature. By the statute they were made subject to revocation by order in council; and the minister will remember that there was a rather protracted discussion on the bill. Is he in a position to state which if any provisions of the Canada Shipping Act have been suspended by order in council as a result of the legislation of 1948?

Mr. Hackett:

The passage that you have read, Mr. Chairman, might be invoked had I introduced an amendment upon which you had to rule. But certainly I am not to be denied the right of reasoning with hon. gentlemen opposite as intelligent persons who may be swayed by argument, and who may, by the sad experience that they have had this afternoon, wish to benefit by the experience and the wisdom of parliament and wish to see themselves assisted by a special committee.
