Hon. R. J. MANION (Minister of Railways and Canals):
Mr. Speaker, I intend to move the motion which stood in my name yesterday with reference to the select standing committee on railways and shipping, substituting the name of Mr. Munn for that of Mr. Hanbury. This suggestion has come from the other side, and I therefore move as follows:
That standing order 63 of the House of Commons relating to the appointment of the select standing committees of the house, be amended by adding to the select standing committees of the house for the present session a select standing committee on railways and shipping owned, operated and controlled by the government, to which will be referred the accounts and the estimates of the Canadian National Railways and the Canadian Government Merchant Marine for the present session, for consideration and report to the house.
Provided however, that nothing in this resolution shall be construed to curtail in any way the full right of discussion in committee of supply and that the said committee consist of Messrs. Beaubien, Bell (St. Antoine), Bothwell, Cantley, Chaplin, Duff, Euler. Fiset (Sir Eugfme), Fraser (Cariboo), Geary, Gobeil, Gray, Munn,
Hanson (York-Sunbury), Heaps, Kennedy (Peace River), McGibbon, MacMillan (Saskatoon), Manion, Power, Rogers and Stewart (Lethbridge) .
Motion as amended agreed to.
