Mr. RYCKMAN:

I should like to point

out that there is a typographical error in line 17, where the word "in" should be struck out and the word "the" substituted, so that it will read: "be paid for the goods." I move accordingly, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. RYCKMAN:

No it was not. So far

as I know my colleagues are of the opinion that their action was correct. But there was the idea abroad to which I have referred. When I tried to localize it and find out what the trouble was the suggestion was made that we had not the power to fix the average value for duty covering fortnightly periods. So, in order to remove all possible doubt we are asking this House of Commons to pass this legislation, remembering, if you will, that it was necessary to act quickly. I think that while some people may object, in the main the action taken was beneficial to the country.

Mr. RYCKMAN:

Yes. I say, as frankly as I can, that I believe the government had the authority. I believe that in the emergency the government should have had the power; I think all the chances are that it did. There is the view that improper or unwarranted action may be asserted. No one has done so thus far, but if such a contention should be advanced naturally the interests of the government and the revenue should be fortified. My answer to the hon. member would be that if this legislation is made retroactive from the month of September, when Great Britain went off the gold standard, we would be prepared for any threat on the part of any body in connection with the correctness of the action taken by the government.
