Even if it is reprinted we should have some time to look it over.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

I would hope that my hon. friend would not prevent some consideration being given to it to-morrow. My hon. friend the Minister of Justice (Hon. Mr. Fitzpatrick) who was associated with the late hon. ex-Minister of Railways and Canals (Hon. Mr. Blair) in some of the hearings and is familiar with most of the matters, will take it up and if it be found that there is anything requiring further consideration I am sure he will be willing to give an opportunity for that. The reason I am anxious to have it advanced is that the Senate has very little to do and it has even threatened to adjourn. If we are able to advance that Bill it will be an accommodation to the Senate and that is a very important matter.

Mr. LENNOX.

I am not desirous of obstructing the matter, but I think if we had the Bill in our hands for a short time before its further consideration is proceeded with it would facilitate its passage.

Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).

Perhaps there are some portions of the Bill which there will not be great difficulty in proceeding with. As to any matters which will require further consideration perhaps there will be no objection to allowing -them to stand

Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).

We might proceed with it on that understanding. I would like to ask the hon. Minister of Finance whether the resolutions on the Order paper will be taken up to-morrow ?

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

The Railway Bill will have priority. If we reach these resolutions we may take them up at a later stage. It will depend upon the time occupied by the Railway Bill.
