Mr. MURPHY:

The Dominion Lands Act of 1906 contained provision for the tabling of orders in council. When the act was revised in 1908 provision was included that these orders in council tabled should be approved by resolution by both houses. The Forest Reserves and Parks Act, which was passed in 1911, contained similar provision. Orders in council under these acts are valid only for one day after the session closes unless they have previously been approved by each house of parliament. For several years the orders in council, although tabled, were not con- ' firmed by resolution, and in 1928 action was taken by special act of parliament, chap. 44, Geo. V. 18-19, assented to 11th June, 1928, validating the orders in council passed up to that time. The present bill is to validate the orders in council passed between the 7th December, 1929, and the 31st January, 1931, which have been tabled in both houses.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
