Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

If that is not

the case, what else can there be in it, because there is to be no tax if it is shown that the export is legal? The section says that this is not to be applied to cases where foreign landing certificates satisfactory to the minister are produced as proof that the goods have been landed at the place designated in the export entry. I take it that what that means is simply this, that that certificate would show illegal exportation, not only illegal exportation so far as the laws of Canada are concerned-the minister shakes his head. Well then, the idea is that the department is of the opinion that notwithstanding everything that has been done towards aiding the United States in connection with their enforcement, there is still a considerable quantity of liquor illegally entering that country from Canada. Am I right in that?
