Mr. RHODES:

When it was sold by the

manufacturer to the purchaser there was a sales tax on it, and that was the end of it. My hon. friend would make it appear that there was a covering tax upon it every time the can was sent to market.

Mr. VENIOT:

Does the minister mean

that there was no covering tax?

Mr. VENIOT:

I do not agree with the

minister. You are taking the following words from the list of articles exempt from the consumption or sales tax, "materials to be used exclusively in the manufacture of usual coverings." Those were formerly exempted from the sales tax.

Mr. RHODES:

My hon. friend is confusing two entirely different things. There is no question that last year the milk can was exempt from the sales tax, and if this provision goes through, it will be subject to the sales tax. But what my hon. friend was saying, and what I took exception to, was that there was a tax on that milk can every time it went to market, which is not so.

Mr. RHODES:

There is no tax of any

kind upon it except the tax upon the milk can when it is sold by the manufacturer to the purchaser. The can might last a year or two years, or as long as it does last, there would be no further tax upon it.

Mr. VENIOT:

No, because you apply the same thing to the other coverings. Take the sardine can. There is a covering tax on that.

The minister will get the

I am prepared to discuss

When the statement made

opposite is particularly anxious to speak. It is nearly eleven o'clock and I should like to introduce some bills.
