EXCHEQUER COURT-RAILWAY DEBTS

?

Mr. L. P.@

DEMERS (St. Johns and Iberville)-(translation)-moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 155), respecting the jurisdiction of the Exchequer Court as to Railway debts. He said : Mr. Speaker, the Act of 1899 already allows the Exchequer Court to order the sale of a railway, at the request of a mortgagor or of a holder of debentures. The Bill which I submit to the consideration of the House has for its object to allow the Court of Exchequer to order that a railway be sold, on a petition from the Minister of Railways or from a creditor not protected by mortgage, when the railway company has become insolvent or is no longer in a position to manage its own affairs.
