ORDERS DISCHARGED.

CON

Angus Claude Macdonell

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MACDONELL.

Mr. Speaker, I beg to move that order No. 49, of Public Bills and Orders, for the second reading of Bill (No. 78) to amend the Railway Act, be now called, for the purpose of enabling me to move that it be discharged from the Order Paper, because it is quite obvious that an opportunity will not be afforded me to bring this Bill before the House as long as it remains on Public Bills and Orders, but in the event of the Minister of Railways bringing in an amendment to the Railway Act, I may have an opportunity in that way to bring the matter before the House.
