Robert Laird Borden (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)
The Bill was passed with the exception of the third section. It has been suggested by my right hon. friend that the Bill might be amended with advantage by striking out the word 'three' in the eighth line of subsection 3 of sectioi 7 of the present Bill and substituting therefor a larger amount. I have communicated with the commission, and I find that all the purposes which were in mind would be fulfilled by another amendment along the line suggested. I therefore move to strike out the third section of this Bill and to substitute the following section:
Subsection 3 of section 7 of the said Act is amended by striking out the word ' three ' in the eighth line and substituting therefor the word ' six.'
