Mr. BARBER:

It is not altogether a question of protection; it is a question of opportunity to sell our own products on the home market in competition with the imported article. It has been pointed out. in a brief which I believe has been presented to the minister, that the difficulty might be overcome by way of drawback. I realize that it would be impossible to exempt this particular industry from the one cent tax. but it could be done by drawback, thus giving the Canadian industry an opportunity to compete with the imported product. I know the difficulty this industry has run up against in connection with exports to Great Britain. If the exported fruit is processed with sugar, a sugar tax must be paid when it enters Great Britain, but if it is shipped in sulphur dioxide form there is

[Mr. Ilsluy.I

no tax. The result is that all our products of this kind exported to Great Britain are shipped in the latter form. But fruit coming here in competition with our own Canadian product has a distinct advantage.

Mr. ILSLEY:

There is an omission in the bill as printed. It is the usual clause with regard to the date of coming into force of the act, and so forth. It was in the resolution, if I remember rightly, but was left out in the printing of the bill.

Mr. BENNETT:

That is because the bill contains a consolidation of so many other items, I suppose. It is a reprint of existing legislation.
