WAR EXCHANGE CONSERVATION ACT, 1940


Resolved, That it is expedient to introduce a measure to be called the War Exchange Conservation Act, 1940, and to provide- 1. That the importation into Canada of any goods enumerated a.nd described in schedule one is prohibited except in such cases as the Minister of National Revenue in his discretion deems desirable and under and in accordance with the terms of a permit granted by him: Provided however that this prohibition shall not apply to- (a) any goods imported from, and being of the growth, produce or manufacture of, any country within the sterling area or Newfoundland, except, at the discretion of the Minister of National Revenue, goods composed wholly or in part of silk; (b) any goods which on or before the second day of December, 1940, were in transit to Canada. _ 2. That notwithstanding anything contained in the preceding resolution, the Minister of National Revenue may, in his discretion, exempt any goods from the operation of the preceding resolution for such periods of time as he may deem desirable and notice of any such exemption shall be published in the Canada Gazette and the exemption shall take effect on and after the date of such publication or any later date fixed in such notice. 3. That for the purposes of these resolutions "sterling area" means the territories under the sovereignty, protection, suzerainty or mandate of His Majesty (except Canada, Newfoundland and Hong Kong) and such other territories whether or not under the sovereignty, protection, suzerainty or mandate of His Majesty as may be designated by the governor in council) * 4. (1) That in the event of producers of goods taking advantage of the prohibition of imports to increase the prices of such goods to the consumer or to maintain such prices at levels deemed by the governor in council to be higher than should prevail, having regard to changes in the cost of production of such goods, the governor in council may, .in addition to permitting entry of such gods, reduce or remove the duties of customs imposed upon such goods. (2) That in the event of any such producer taking advantage of the prohibition of imports as aforesaid, the governor in council may impose upon all the products of such producer, or any of them, an excise tax equivalent to the amount of customs duty which would be paid by such goods if the same were imported into Canada under the provisions of the general tariff and the same shall be collectible as a tax, and the provisions of the Special War Revenue Act as to the collection of taxes shall be applicable thereto. 5. (1) That goods enumerated and described in schedule two, the growth, produce or manufacture of the United Kingdom, when imported into Canada in a manner and under conditions which entitle such goods to entry under the British preferential tariff of Canada, shall be exempt from the rates of duty set out in schedule A to the Customs Tariff and shall, in lieu thereof, be subject to the rates of duty set out in schedule two. (2) That any enactment founded on this resolution shall apply to all goods enumerated and described in schedule two imported or taken out of warehouse for consumption on or after the second day of December, 1940, and to goods previously imported for which no entry for consumption was made before the said date. 6. That the governor in council in order to increase Canada's supply of foreign exchange may, on the recommendation of the Minister of Finance, enter into agreements with individuals, partnerships or corporations to grant assistance by way of special tax credits and/or special allowances for depreciation or depletion under the Income War Tax Act and The Excess Profits Tax Act, if, in the opinion of the governor in council, such assistance is necessary in order that an expansion of the exports of any^ individual, partnership or corporation receiving such assistance may take place. 7. That any enactment founded on these resolutions shall be deemed to have come into force on the second day of December, 1940, and to expire on the date of the issue of a proclamation under the War Measures Act declaring that a state of war no longer exists or on such earlier date as may be fixed in a proclamation of the governor in council. rariff [tem umber 21 23 ex 45 65 67 79 79a 79b 82 (< 82 (i 89 ex 99b 99f ex 99g ex 101 War Budget-Mr. Ilsley

Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, we have all

listened with great interest to the speech made by the Minister of Finance (Mr. Usley). May I say to him that, having regard to the advance notices in the press, and what we have heard in the corridors, the proposals are not nearly as important as perhaps I had hoped they would be. I say that because I, too, realize the seriousness of the exchange position, and the necessity for conserving our foreign exchange.

Some very important changes in the trends of business will, of course, be brought about by the resolutions. We have not had an opportunity even to analyse to any degree the items affected, and therefore I hope that unless the necessity is exceedingly great, the government will consent to an adjournment of this debate until the debate on the address is concluded, so that we may have ample opportunity for study.

My first reaction is that these resolutions will be beneficial for the purpose for which they are intended; and such criticisms and suggestions as we may have to make will, I hope, be constructive and helpful, and in no sense be considered as in the slightest degree contravening the government's war effort, which we are desirous to see forwarded with the utmost expedition.

Therefore I beg the leave of the house to move adjournment of the debate. We could confer together as to when it might be resumed. My suggestion is that to-morrow night we should complete the debate on the address in reply, and then we might resume this matter on Wednesday. I should be

agreeable to that, if it meets with the approval of the Prime Minister.

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

So far as may be possible the government is anxious to meet my hon. friend's views. I believe, however, it would be unwise to attempt to conclude the other debate first. These resolutions are very important, and I suggest that the country should know as soon as possible that they have been accepted by the house.

If it would meet the convenience of my hon. friend, I would suggest that we continue the debate on the address in reply this afternoon, and that to-morrow we proceed with the resolutions. I was going to make the further suggestion that it might facilitate matters and perhaps meet the convenience of hon. members if the resolutions were immediately referred to the committee of ways and means, on the understanding that hon. mem-[Mr. IlsleyO

bers would be free to discuss any phase of the matter in that committee. The Minister of Finance (Mr. Ilsley) would be enabled in that way immediately to answer questions, a course of procedure which it would not be possible for him to follow during the course of a formal debate. If that procedure were followed, I believe it would expedite this week's proceedings.
