Joseph Henry Harris

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HARRIS:

I may say that the original petition was in error sent to the Department of the Secretary of State. When it finally found its way to the House of Commons it was too late to proceed with the petition. I should like to have the petition go to the standing orders committee in order that it may be properly dealt with there.
