Hugh Alexander Stewart (Minister of Public Works)

Mr. STEWART (Leeds):

I hope it will mean a good deal more than nothing. It is the intention to get this bill through this session. My hon. friend appeared before the committee this morning and made his representations and he was promised that they would be given consideration. All this report asks for is permission to sit while the house is in session.

George Gibson Coote

United Farmers of Alberta

Mr. COOTE:

As very little explanation

has been given on this bill; in fact, as I think it was given no explanation on second reading but was simply sent to the committee, I wonder whether the minister would be good enough to explain to this committee the purpose of the bill. I do not believe any explanation has ever been given to the house.
