Hon. D. D. McKENZIE (Solicitor General) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 124, to amend the Escheats Act. He said:
This bill comes to me from the office of the Department of Justice, and its sole provision deals simply with the time in which proceedings under the Escheats Act shall be drawn. The original act is dated 1910, and this is the first amendment to it. The bill simply fixes the time within which an action must be brought. As a rule actions are brought within the usual limit of six years. This is a provision that any action under the Escheats Act shall be brought within two years from the arising of the cause of action.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
