I feel sure that provision

for an audit of the accounts of harbour commissions is made in the Audit Act, but I will ascertain beyond doubt and inform my hon. friend.

Mr. CARDIN:

I think there is an error

in section 25 which I have just noticed. It is provided that the corporation may "in the following cases seize and detain any vessel within the limits of the province of Nova Scotia''. That is manifestly an error.

Mr. HANSON:

May I draw the minister's attention to the fact that the bay of Fundy is partly within the province of New Brunswick and partly within the province of Nova Scotia and that it has been looked upon as a mare clausum. Has the minister given any consideration to that matter? I am just suggesting it for his consideration.

James Alexander Robb (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. ROBB:

The bill as it passed the

House of Commons was identical with the bill which passed the House of Commons last year, with the exception of two small amendments, one in section 5 subsection (2), in which the shares of the board are declared to be non-transferable. The amendment in the House of Commons was to insert after the word ."transferable" the words "except at the option of the board." The bill, as it comes back to the House for concurrence is in exactly the same form as the bill which was concurred in by the House last year, with the exception of the provision for recognition of colonization societies, and this was an amendment made by the House of Commons itself.

Motion agreed to; amendments read the second time and concurred in.
