Arthur Meighen (Solicitor General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

That is my intention

and my hope. I do not think it will entail the sacrifice of a great deal of the time of the ,House, because the attention of the House has already been given to the principle, and, in large .measure, to the details. Consequently, I do not think I am asking a great deal of the House in asking that this Bill should pass.

Mr. LEMIEUX:

The previous Bill was

Arthur Meighen (Solicitor General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

That is the Bill to which I referred in my opening remarks. The hon. member for Rouville (Mr. Lemieux) was chairman of the committee on that Bill, and that committee reviewed the measure in great detail. This Bill differs from that in some respects, but in principle it is the same. Any changes that have been made are dictated by the experience of banks that have been organized since that Bill was before the House.
