NATIONAL RAILWAYS AND SHIPPING COMMITTEE


Mr. W. D. EULER (North Waterloo) presented the first report of the select standing committee on Railways and Shipping *owned, operated and controlled by the gov... ernment, as follows: Your committee recommends that its minutes of proceedings and evidence be printed from day to day for the use of the members of the committee and of the House, and that rule 74 be suspended in reference thereto. Mr. EULER presented the second report of the select standing committee on Railways and Shipping owned, operated and controlled by the government, as follows: Your committee recommends that it be granted leave to sit while the House is in session. He said: I move that the first and second reports of the select standing committee on Railways and Shipping owned, operated and controlled by the government be adopted. It may be necessary to give notice of this motion, but we desire to meet to-morrow, and the reports deal only with the printing of the evidence and the permission to sit while the House is in session. Perhaps the House will adopt the reports.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON (West York):

I think the motion might be adopted, but I should like to point out to the chairman of the committee that there is not much use sending out notices of meetings which reach the members after meetings are held. I do not know when the notices were sent out, but I know that I got mine this morning. Notices for meetings of committees should be sent out in time, so that members will be, able to make arrangements to be present. However I do not object to what is now being done.
