Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

That puts quite a different complexion on the matter from what I understood. My hon. friend contends that a local sale shall be taxed as such and shall not be covered up by a fictitious export entry?

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?

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

Before we further consider the suggestion of the name, I wonder what is the real reason for the change? I do not think we have got it from the minister. Has the minister, for example, any reports that there will be better service, greater consideration given to that which is by all odds the more important department of the two, that of soldiers' re-establishment, which spends infinitely more money and requires infinitely more time than the activities which can be followed by a Dominion department of health? If we have any such reports, I think we should know what they are and who make them. At all events, at some considerable expense to the department of reestablishment there has been an investigation or a series of investigations made, I think, quite near where I come from, West York, and we have the Hunter and McGregor combination working there. Have they brought in recommendations for this?
