earlier date as you are all aware the adjourn ment was arranged in order to per mit the calling of a conference of representatives from the provtacea and the dominion to consider the sirols report the main items of oils report are financial in tlhelr charac ter the report recommends that the ppwer to raise money by way of in come tag corporation tax and death duties elicukj be vested exclusively in the federal government to corn pentftie the provinces for ttus loss of taxing power the report recom mends that the dominion should as sume 4tae entire responsibility for re lief made necessary through unem ployment and also should take over the provincial debt of all or the pro vinces the closing days of the house since my last report were taken up in the consideration of the measures intro duced by tbe minister of finance to further the conservation of foreign exchange the object of the legisla tion is to divert the expenditure of money by the general public from the purchase of goods made in the united states to the purchase of goods made in canada or in qreat britain the need for this does not apoeor to be fully appreciated dur ing the last war canada had no dif ficulty in arranging for the purchase in the united states f all types of war goods she required together with the necessary credit for payments of goods this time all is changed tine neutrality act and he johnson act preven the us from selling any war commodity to canada excepting tor cash and also prevents the os from loaning an money to canada this being so our purchases from the united states must necessarily be restricted to an amount equal to our favourable balance of trade with the ub plus the gold we produce and plus the uj3 exchange which we already hold in the form of securi ties foreign bank balance etc the favorable balance of tourist trade as well as the payment or interwt and dividends are also factors the war exchange conservation act prohibits the importation into canada from the u s of ft long list of manufactur ed goods mentioned in the act total ing something over one hundred and sixty trade items as to thirtyfive other items of trade these may still be imported but only upon license the minister announced that the act ls estimated to effect a saving of fom five to six millions monthly of us exchange of course the suc cess or otherwise of the act depends upon one thine we can by law pro hibit the importation of merchandise from the uj3 and we can tell them in effect that we want war supplies inrtead or general merchandise but we have no means of knowing the amount by which our exports to the uj9 will be reduced as the result of the embargo which we have placed upon ujs goods entering canada tf the act works successfully hs scope will doubtless be further
