Mr. GALLII-IER moved :
That that part of the tenth report of the Select Standing Committee on Standing Orders which refers to the petition of Patrick Burns and others for an Act of incorporation under the name of the Anthracite Coal and Railway Company he referred back to the said committee for further consideration.
He said : In explanation of this motion, I may say that at the time the matter was dealt with on the 3rd March last by the Select Standing Committee on Standing Orders we had no proof before us of the due publication of the notice required by tbe rule. As that proof is now in our hands, the Select Standing Committee will be prepared to deal with tbe petition and to consider it favourably.
Motion agreed to.
