The MINISTER OF JUSTICE.

This Bill is a reproduction of a Bill introduced last session to enable the government to expropriate in trust a limited estate in property ; for instance, if the government wishes to expropriate a quarry only for a limited period of time it will enable the government to do so. If the government give notice of expropriation and afterwards ascertain that the property is not required for public purposes, this Bill wil enable the government to withdraw from the expropriation and abandon the property subject to the usual condition, that it will pay the damages incurred in the interval. Provision is also made to enable the government in the event of a property having been

expropriated, to remedy the damages which have been incurred through addition of other works which may be necessary.
