The object of this bill is to empower She governor in council to determine a remuneration for the harbour commissioners of New Westminster for their services out of the revenue of the harbour. Hitherto the commissioners have served without remuneration and the business has been increasing every year since their incorporation. During the year 1934 they have made a splendid showing. They have met their operating expenses, the interest on debentures both to the public and the government, and they had a surplus of many thousands of dollars. I have not the particulars here but when the bill is in committee I will give the exact figures.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
