Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Leader of the Opposition):

This report, as I recall

it, merely provides for printing, does it not? Or does it provide as well that the committee shall sit when the House is in session?

Ml1. MACDONALD (Pictou): It gives power to the committee to print, when the committee may deem it advisable, certain portions of its deliberations. We have been asked to hear representations from the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia regarding the possible reduction of their representation, and the committee felt that it would be desirable to have available a report of whatever their case might be. It is not intended to print continuously every bit of the deliberations of the committee in meeting, but of course we shall want to have power ultimately to have the proceedings printed when we come to deal with the report. In the second place, we are asking that leave be given the committee to sit while the House is in session. The report was concurred in unanimously by all members of the committee and I have no doubt that the House feels, as did the committee, that every facility should be provided for proceeding

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS- MELFORT NORTHEASTERLY


Hon. GEORGE P. GRAHAM (Minister of Railways): With the unanimous consent of the House, Mr. Speaker, I move that the order: House in committee on Bill No. 40, respecting the ' construction of a Canadian National railway line to mile 41 of the Melfort branch near Nipawin in the province of Saskatchewan. -be discharged and that the bill be referred back to the select standing committee on Railways, Canals and Telegraph Lines for further consideration. There seems to be some misunderstanding as to the amendment made in committee to this bill, and I think the easiest way of dealing with it is to refer it back.
