Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DURANLEAU:

I think an oral answer to this question will better serve the purpose.

As the house knows, the Canada Shipping Act, 1934, covers international, inter-empire and domestic matters. As to the domestic matters, such as part V, sick mariners and marine hospitals; part VI, pilotage; part IX, lighthouses, buoys and beacons on Sable island; part X, public harbours and harbour masters; part XI, port wardens, and so forth; it can be proclaimed at any time, and the question of doing so is now under consideration.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

As to international and inter-empire matters, as this was the first enactment dealing with merchant shipping to be undertaken by any dominion since the passing of the statute of Westminster, it will be utilized as a guide by other dominions when legislating in regard to merchant shipping, so that the desired measure of uniformity recommended by the conference on the operation of dominion legislation and Merchant Shipping Legislation of 1929, and the terms of the British commonwealth merchant shipping agreement of 1931 may be secured. The act I understand is now being examined from this point of view. No other dominions have yet enacted similar legislation. I may also point out that the conclusions of the international conference regarding safety of life at sea and load lines, which formed a large part of the act of 1934, have already been given effect to by this parliament, in August 1931, by chapter 49 of that year, and are in operation now.

I think this statement will serve as an answer to the query of the hon. member for New Westminster on January 21.
