Mr. BOYS:

I should like to find out at

whose instance this is put in. It is very difficult to appreciate the full effect of this amendment without having the Companies Act here to assist one. Is this a power to be given the directors with the approval of the shareholders, or is it for the directors alone? Then there is one other feature which it seems to me is a little extraordinary. In the third line of subsection 2 occur the words "shall be determined once for all each financial year. ' How can you determine something once for all each year? Is it the intention that the board shall deal with it say at the first meeting, and that their decision shall apply for that year, and that the following year they shall deal with it again?

Mr. BOYS:

I imagine that two inch planking would be sufficient to do this job, and I do not think the cost would be more than I have stated. I am not criticizing the district engineer, but he replied to me that he could not get the money to do the work. I hope the minister will see that it is provided.

Mr. BOYS:

Is any portion of this item
