Rt. Hon. Sir GEORGE FOSTER (Acting Prime Minister):
I desire, with the permission of the House, to move:
That a message he sent to the Senate to inform Their Honours that this House will unite with the Senate in the appointment of a Joint committee of both Houses to consider and report upon the desirability of uniting certain branches of the two Houses performing similar duties, and particularly the Law Branch, the Law Translation Branch, and the Debates Translation Branch; and if in the opinion of the committee it is desirable to unite any of the branches, to submit a scheme therfor; and that the following members will act on the
part of the House of Commons on the said joint committee: Messieurs Maclean (Halifax), Thompson (Yukon), Stewart (Lanark), Boland (Beauoe), Lapointe (Quebec East.)
The resolution explains itself.
Subtopic: JOINT COMMITTEE OP BOTH HOUSES ON UNIFICATION OP CERTAIN BRANCHES.
