Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I just want to

have the effect of this clause clear. I understand that the whole effect of it is to enable the bonding signature to be affixed to these bonds without going through the form of signing-for there is a tremendous lot of them-but using mechanical means instead. I just want to be sure that we have the same safeguard in connection with this process of signing bonds that we have to-day in connection with our bills and notes.
