Sir WILFRID LAURIER.
I beg to move:
That a special committee of five members be appointed, composed of Messrs. Guthrie, Sproule, McIntyre (Perth), Haggart (Lanark), and Ethier, to consider the recommendations contained in the fourteenth report of the Select Standing Committee on Railways, Canals and Telegraph Lines, to amend rule 87 and 88 of this House, and that the said report be referred to the said committee.
The suggestions made by the Railway Committee are somewhat technical, referring to the practice on private Bills. They call for an amendment to the rules, and I think it better to have them considered by a special committee.
