Mr. Speaker, this bill provides for an amendment to subsection 3 of section 4 of chapter 41 of the revised statutes, the Dominion Notes Act, and provides that the provisions of that subsection can be suspended from time to time by order in council. It may be termed, in a sense, a companion bill, and one which necessarily follows the Gold Export Act which we passed last year.
