I

beg to present the second report of the select standing committee on Railways and Shipping. As it is the intention of the committee to ask for the printing of this rather lengthy report, I would suggest that the reading of it now might be dispensed with.

Mr. W. C. GOOD (Brant):

I move,

seconded by the hon. member for West Edmonton. (Mr. Kennedy):

Whereas under an order of reference made on the 23rd March, 1925, the standing committee on Public Accounts has had under investigation the methods of

assessment and collection of business profits and income taxes;

Therefore be it resolved, that the said committee on Public Accounts be instructed that they have power to consider and recommend to this House such amendments to the Income War Tax Act as may seem to them advisable.

Mr. SPEAKER:

It is usual of course for notice to be given in such a case as this, but the motion may be entertained by unanimous consent of the House. Is that consent conceded?

Hon J. A. ROBB (Acting Minister of Finance):

I would direct your attention, Mr. Speaker, to the fact that this is not a report from the Public Accounts committee. I am not questioning the opinions of the hon. members who have moved and seconded this motion, but it seems to me that in the absence of the chairman of the committee the matter might stand as a notice of motion.
