We are dealing with one of the most vital matters in the Railway Act. Will this clause not have this effect in addition to what I have said? The powers that the Railway Committee have and that the minister has are taken away and given largely to the Board of Railway Commissioners. Therefore such a clause will be conducive to loose, slipshod action by the Railway Committee, because they will say: " Oh, we will give these people a charter; we will make good fellows of ourselves; the Board of Railway Commissioners will not let them build the railway." Suppose some member wants to please a friend. The Railway Committee will say: "All right, we will please him; we will give him a charter; the Board, of Railway Commissioners will stop the construction." Such a measure will be conducive-I cannot see how it will be otherwise-to carelessness on the part of the Railway Committee, because they will have no final say in railway legislation after this Bill is passed. A member may get a charter passed to build a railway through his constituency, and the Board of Railway Commissioners may decline to let the railway be built.
