Mr. NESBITT:

I would point out to my hon. friend that if he will have his herds tested he will find that when the Government officials get through he will not be overpaid. I have had some experience, and I know of others who have a good deal of experience, and I can assure him they did not complain that they were overpaid.

Mr. NESBITT:

I do not think that

there is anything objectionable in the clause as it is drawn. The Customs Department should have some means of finding out the practical cost of manufacturing any goods, and a reasonable man could easily add what would be a fair profit for overhead. So that I do not think we should be particularly anxious about this clause; I think it is very well drawn. The old dumping clause did not carry out what it was supposed to carry out. This year especially we have had a great deal of trouble with goods cheapened on the other side. They did not want to cheapen them too much because it would affect their own trade, but we have had a great deal of trouble with dumping into Canada of goods overmanufactured and standing on the shelves of the manufacturers in the United States, and it is absolutely necessary to have something tc assist the trade of this country in stopping that class of business. The old dumping clause did not prevent it.

Mr. NESBITT:

It does not matter what the amount is; they will pass it on to the consumer, as anybody knows who knows anything about buying coal or other goods at rock-bottom prices. If a manufacturer is making certain goods on which he makes enough profit to pay for this trouble and the fee, he will pay it, and so will we.
