The deputy of the present minister. A good many of these references will aipply to the port of Vancouver. May I ask the minister if any request has been made for this legislation from any of the pilotage boards of British Columbia?

No, we have had no such requests. It is purely an administrative amendment.

Mr. NEILL:

But the minister has no knowledge on the subject. The pilotage boards have not asked for it. How does the minister know that this legislation will be acceptable or workable to the pilotage boards of British Columbia?

Mr. DURANLEAU:

This does not affect any pilotage board; it affects only the pilots. If there is any place where we need delegation of power it is a place three thousand miles from Ottawa. It is that I may delegate my authority to hold an inquiry in Vancouver, for instance, otherwise I would have to go there myself.

Mr. NEILL:

The whole purpose of this amendment, then, is to authorize the minister to delegate his power?

Mr. Speaker, some of us who have been discussing the difficulties in regard to redistribution have made some progress to-day, and we would like to have to-morrow morning to meet and go further into these matters in an effort to

arrive at a conclusion. If it is satisfactory to hon. gentlemen opposite I suggest that the house adjourn until three o'clock to-morrow, and I hope we shall be able to make some progress in this matter.

Mr. MACKENZIE ICING@

I understand that the Minister of Marine is a member of the committee that is conferring on the redistribution measure and he could not very well be in both places at the same time. If progress is being made in respect to redistribution I am sure it will be welcome news to all hon. members, and if the matter can be furthered by the house not sitting in the morning, I am sure we will all be agreeable to adjournment until three o'clock to-morrow afternoon.
