Mr. BENNETT:

Last evening the hon. member for Antigonish-Guysborough (Mr. Duff) made a statement with respect to the action taken by the British government, which I indicated I thought was hardly in accordance with the facts.

In 1932 the parliament of the United Kingdom passed the Merchant Shipping (Safety and Load Line Conventions) Act, 1932, 22-3 George V, Chapter 9, and by that statute it is provided that it might be extended to colonies; and on the 10th of May, 1933, important sections of the act were made applicable to Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Guiana, Cyprus, Fiji, Jamaica and dependencies, Kenya, and Mauritius. The convention is incorporated in the statutes of Great Britain as found in the preamble to the act and in the second schedule, just as is being done here.

Mr. REID:

Are you attempting to pass all the definitions en bloc, is that the suggestion? If that is the intention, of course we might as well not take any further interest in the bill. I thought an undertaking was given that when this bill was before the committee representations would be listened to. Now are we to be told that we are protesting and trying to block the bill if we try to get an explanation?
