EXCHEQUER COURT ACT AMENDMENT


Right Hon. C. J. DOHERTY (Minister of Justice) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 19, to amend the Exchequer Court Act. He said: The purpose of this Bill is to provide that, in cases of appeals from the decision of the Commissioner of Patents, in which case the Commissioner is entitled to appeal and to defend his decision, there shall be on the part of the Commisioner a right to appeal to the Supreme Court. There is presently on the part of the other party a right to appeal to the Supreme Court, and as the Commissioner figures in the proceedings as a representative of the public interest, it seemed only right that he should have the same right of appeal that the private party has. Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time.

Mr. BUREAU:

Is there anything in the statutes making it plain that in this case 'to-morrow" means "Monday"?

The phraseology that is always used is that on the next sitting day, provided it is a Government day, it is competent for the Government to take up the question.

Mr. W. S. MIDDLEBRO (Grey North) :

Mr. Speaker, in looking over the list of pairs in Hansard this morning, I find that the name of the hon. member for Provencher (Mr. Molloy) has not been entered as being paired with the hon. member for Victoria (Mr. Tolmie). There was a distinct understanding that they should be paired until 9.45 last evening, and as the hon. member for Provencher was good enough to extend that, they should have been entered as paired accordingly.
