Hon. N. W. ROWELL (President of the Privy Council) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 46, for carrying into effect the Treaty of Peace between His Majesty and Bulgaria.
He said: The Bill is, in form, the same as the Bill introduced and passed at the last session relating to the treaties of peace with Germany and Austria. Hon. members will recall that the Senate amended the Bill last session so as to make it include other treaties of peace. Objection was taken- and, I think, reasonably so-by members of the Opposition to passing legislation affecting treaties before those treaties had been submitted to the House. It is therefore necessary to have a special Bill to deal with the Treaty of Peace with Bulgaria.
Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time.
