Mr. HUGHES (North Victoria).

I notice one clause in this Bill which, to my mind, is very dangerous, that is subsection 6, referring to examinations, and it is one which might possibly destroy the intended benefits accruing from this Bill. I would submit that any standard of examinations should be made subject to the ratification of the Governor in Council or some other controlling body. We have in the jn'ovince of Ontario a medical board which is fast earning the name of a tyrannical body. I submit that there could be no harm in retaining to the control of this parliament some immediate jurisdiction over this body.
