Mr GLYNN (Angas) .- If the words " British subject " are retained, they will apply to naturalized British subjects, and if the words "other than an alien enemy" are also put in, it may exclude some naturalized subjects. A German subject, according to German ideas, is a man who has been born in Germany, though he may have been naturalized elsewhere ; and he remains a German-sub- ject unless he gets a special certificate of dismissal, which a good many do not. I fancy the limitation goes beyond what the honorable member intends, and that the amendment now suggested may possibly deny the right of civil trial to some naturalized British subjects, and to aliens who are not enemy subjects.

Amendment, by leave, amended.
