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.

Very likely, and you
