Section 2 is the usual clause granting an extension of time. Section 3 reads as follows :
Nothwithstanding the limitation of time for the commencement of the rai 1 way of the company enacted by section 2 of chapter 93 of the statutes of 1902,-
That section is just the usual clause providing that if the construction of the railway does not commence until a certain time and 15 per cent of the capital is not expended within two years, or if the railway is not finished within five years, the powers of the company shall cease in respect to so much of the railway as then remains uncompleted.
-all the other provisions contained in the Acts relating to the company, except section 10 of chapter 74 of the statutes of 1900 are declared to have continued to apply to the company and to its undertaking and to be in full force and effect.
Section 10 of chapter 74 of the statutes of 1900 reads as follows :
If the construction of the railway is not commenced and fifteen per cent on the amount of the capital stock is not expended thereon within two years after the passing of this Act, or if the railway is not finished and put in operation within five years after the passing of this Act, the powers granted by this Act or by the Railway Act shall cease and be null and void as respects so much of the railway as then remains uncompleted.
The Bill provides that this section, section 10 of chapter 74 of the statutes of 1900, shall not apply, hut that all the other clauses contained in the Acts relating to the company shall apply. I see that the words in the amended Bill * are declared to have continued to ' are struck out, and that the word I* shall, ' is substituted. The word ' to,' in the 25th line, should also have been struck out, so that it will read ' shall apply to the company and to its undertaking, and be in full force and effect.' I would move that the word ' to ' be struck out.
