Hon. A. B. COPP (Secretary of State) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 190, to amend the Companies Act.
He said: The bill comprises twenty-eight sections, all of which, with the exception of two, are to correct ambiguities and make other changes of minor importance. I would direct the attention of hon. members to sections 22 and 23, which make special provision regarding the paying of dividends of mining companies. These, of course, will be thoroughly examined when we go into committee. Otherwise the changes are merely alterations of wording, as I have said, to correct ambiguities.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
