Mr JOHNSON (Lang) - I feel disposed to support the amendment. The arguments adduced in support of it seem to me to be very fair, and I trust that they will appeal to the Minister. I do not agree with the suggestion that we should impose a special duty upon imported publications. Any proposal of that . kind would at once raise the fiscal issue, and would have to be discussed upon party lines. The matter should be dealt with quite apart from any such considerations.

Suggest corrections
