I suppose this Bill merely means an extension of time for a year to make the deposit of the Finance Minister.

The Bill was considered by the Banking and Commerce Committee during my absence, and personally I am not acquainted with it. But I think that is correct.

I was absent from the city when the Bill was considered by the Banking and Commerce Committee. If the hon. gentlemau (Hon. Mr. Haggart) has any doubt, I will let the Bill stand. We might go on, and before the third reading I shall have an opportunity to consider the matter.

Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).

This seems quite an elaborate Bill erected on a very small foundation. I suppose the Committee on Banking and Commerce has considered whether the usual notice given in the ' Canada Gazette ' and other local papers is sufficient to cover all the amendments. But there does not seem to be very much remaining of the Bill as at first proposed. I do not know whether the attention of the Finance Minister has been directed to this.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

I have observed just now that instead of a very small Bill, merely extending the time for making deposit, we have quite an extensive measure. No doubt it was well considered by the Committee on Banking and Commerce. But, in view of the point that has been raised. I would suggest that we go through all the Bill but the last clause, and before it reaches another stage I can give the matter my attention.

Progress reported.
