Mr. ROBB:

Copies of this bill when printed and of the Patent Act were sent over to the British authorities. We have not advanced the bill furthe. because some days ago we received a cable from them requesting that certain slight amendments be made so thao the bill might very properly conform to the regulations. To meet the British government's requirements I propose to move the following.

That clause 3 of bill No. 21 be amended by adding an "s" to the word "section" in the first line and substituting for the word "is the word "are" in said line and by adding to said clause the following:

50. Any trade mark the proprietor of which is an association the existence of which is not contrary to the law of the country to which such association belongs, even if such association does not possess an industrial or commercial establishment may be registered under this act upon compliance with the requirements thereof and on such particular conditions as may be established by regulations to be made by the minister with the approval of the Governor in Council.

The object is to put co-operative associations on the same basis as incorporated companies or individuals.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

Clause 3 as

drafted, it seems to me, simply provides for a retroactive right to the extent of four months. Is that right?
