Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Finance) moved the second reading of bill No. 166, to amend the Dominion Succession Duty Act.
Mr. JEAN-FRANQOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata): Mr. Speaker, once more I register my protest against this kind of legislation. After the interprovincial conference in 1935 Mr. Dunning, who. was then minister of finance, came out with this same suggestion, which was also contained in the report of the Rowell-Sirois commission. I always felt that I was wrong when I supported Mr. Dunning, and! I could not accept the Sirois report, which was the apotheosis of soft brains. For these reasons I register my protest against legislation of this kind.
Motion agreed to, bill read the second time, and the house went into committee thereon, Mr. Bradette in the chair.
