LIB

Edward Walter Nesbitt

Liberal

Mr. NESBITT:

This Bill was up on Friday night, but the Chairman of the Private Bills Committee was not present, and no one could tell us why this company wanted its patent extended. The Bill does not say anything about it. So far as I am concerned, I am opposed to patents being extended without some reasonable ground being given.

Progress reported.
