Motion agreed to.
Mr. J. H. HARRIS (Toronto-Scarborough) presented the second report of the select standing committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines, as follows:
The select standing committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines have the honour to submit the following as their second report:
Your committee have had under consideration Bill No. 29, an act to amend the Railway Act, and having heard representations from the railway employees concerned, from the counsel of the railways, and the view's of counsel representing the Board of Railway Commissioners, your committee are of the opinion that it is not in the best interests of the country, particularly at this period in the railway situation, to pass the proposed legislation. Your committee therefore, on division, have agreed to report that the preamble of Bill No. 29 has not been proven to the satisfaction of your committee and that said bill should not be passed.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
J. H. Harris,
