My attention has been drawn to the fact that when I replied to the request of the right hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Meighen) to lay on the Table of the House a copy of the Order in Council amending the Order in Council respecting the Home Bank inquiry, I did not at the same time lay on the Table of the House the original order respecting the appointment of the commission to inquire into the Home Bank failure; I therefore beg to lay this order on the Table.
