Mr. HEENAN:

That has been considered, but we do not want to load the bill up with any more provisions than it had last year. This bill may not be all that we require- and here I am taking the same ground that I took last year, and the same ground that was taken by my hon. friend from Winnipeg North Centre-but we feel that it is a step in the right direction, and we do not want to do anything to jeopardize its passage through the second chamber If the bill works any hardship upon any British subjects, there will be time enough to look after that once we get the principle established.
