This bill has to do with amending the Canada Shipping Act of 1934, and has nothing to do with the sale of the ships mentioned by my hon. friend, so I hardly think this would be the occasion to discuss that matter.
Mr. (FINN: I might say that all I could hear of what was said was the word "shipping." I am satisfied that this bill has nothing to do with the matter I mentioned, as the minister says. But I could not hear; the articulation of some hon. members of the government is of such a kind that you cannot hear what is said and the only way you can find out is to rise to your feet. You do not make a mistake, but they think you do.
Motion agreed to and the house went into committee, Mr. Sanderson in the chair.
On section 1-Definitions.
Subtopic: CANADA SHIPPING ACT, 1934
