Hon. CHARLES FITZPATRICK:
(Minister of Justice) moved for leave to introduce a Bill (No. 154) to amend chapter 61 of the Statutes of 1903 respecting the Revised Statutes of Canada. He said : The object of this Bill is to correct two clerical errors that occurred in the Act passed last session with respect to the revision of the Statutes. In sections 4 and 11 the revised roll is spoken of as the last amended roll, and as there is only one roll this is likely to lead to confusion. There can be only one roll as respecting the Statutes, and this is to avoid any possible confusion respecting the use of this word in the Statutes.
