Mr. LENNOX.

Before we proceed with the consideration of this Bill in committee,

I would draw the attention of the right hon. the leader of the government to the fact that it is very difficult for us to hear what is being Said in the Chamber, owing to conversations in the corridors outside this door, and I think it would be well to adopt some means to prevent any undue interruption cf that kind.

The PRIME MINISTER.

It is no doubt somewhat difficult to hear what is said across the House, and it would be well to see that hon. members should be able to understand what is going on.
