George Prudham (Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys)

Liberal

Mr. Prudham:

This measure is entirely technical in nature and is designed to bring up to date the federal law relating to surveys of public lands coming under federal government jurisdiction. This revision is the outcome of changed conditions and of developments in modern surveying practices. A modification of the existing law has become necessary because of legislative changes in the last few years. The Dominion Lands Surveys Act has become inoperative because it applies to classes of lands coming under the old Dominion Lands Act, which was repealed last year and replaced by the Territorial Lands Act.

Three main changes are proposed in this new Canada Lands Surveys Act. First, the public lands to which it applies are redefined. Second, its provisions have been adapted to modern surveying practices. Third, the qualifications of surveyors have been restated.

As I have said, this bill, being purely technical in nature, should be non-controversial.

Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in.

Mr. Prudham thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 402, respecting the surveys of public lands of Canada.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. Gardiner:

The proposed act will replace the Dairy Industry Act, and it is made necessary by reason of the decisions of the supreme court and the judicial committee of the privy *council on the margarine reference. Consideration was given to whether it would be sufficient to amend the act in all its different sections in order to provide for the changes that were necessary because of those decisions, but on the advice of the Department of Justice new legislation has been drafted.

The main points of difference as compared with the present act are as follows: First, the manufacture and sale of dairy products will no longer be controlled. The provision in the act prohibiting the manufacture and sale of dairy products substitutes will be dropped. Second, the control of interprovincial and export movement of dairy products for which grades and standards have been established is added to the import control as provided for under the present act. In other words, the method of attack in connection with the enforcement of regulations having to do with dairy products is through control of the interprovincial and international sides of the handling of the product rather than through control of production and sale within a province.

Mr. Charlton:

We have no wish to hold up this resolution, because a revision of this act is long overdue. We consent to the passage of the resolution on the distinct understanding that we do not jeopardize our right to [DOT] discuss the bill when it is brought forward.

Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in.

Mr. Gardiner thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 403, to establish national standards for dairy products and to regulate interprovincial and international trade in dairy products.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Diefenbaker:

I should like to ask the minister how frequently the right has been used to take an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada in forma pauperis since the change has been made in the law. At the time the law was changed it brought a right to the individual that he had hitherto not enjoyed, in that regardless of his poverty he was enabled to take his appeal, having regard to the limitations contained in the law, to the Supreme Court of Canada. It would be a matter of interest to know the extent to which that privilege has been used. Is there any case in mind or outstanding at the present time to which this section will be applicable, or is there any appeal that would be taken that has been denied by reason of the fact that the prospective appellant has not taken advantage of his right within the period of time provided by the statute?

Mr. Garson:

This suggestion came to the department and the government from the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, who felt that the amendment indicated in the bill should be provided. We have accepted this view without much question. So far as the questions my hon. friend has asked are concerned, I shall be glad to get the exact information and let him have it after the noon adjournment.
