THE WAR MEASURES ACT, 1914. BILL TO EXTEND ORDERS IN COUNCIL NOT PROCEEDED WITH FOR THE PRESENT.
On the Orders of the Day:
Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Acting Minister of Justice):
I wish to make a statement with regard to Order No. 26, Second Reading of Bill No. 71, to extend the operation of the Orders and Regulations passed by the Governor in Council under the War Measures Act, 1914.
This Bill was to have been gone on with earlier, but for the fact that intimation has come from the Prime Minister that the arrangements now in effect as to the Treaty
of Peace are such that it is unlikely any treaty of peace will be formally ratified in such a way that a declaration ending the war might be made by His Majesty before approximately the first of August. Consequently, no object would be served by going on with the measure at the present time.
Subtopic: BILL TO EXTEND ORDERS IN COUNCIL NOT PROCEEDED WITH FOR THE PRESENT.
