Hon. H. A. STEWART (Minister of Public Works) presented the second and final report of the special committee as follows:
Your special committee to whom was referred Bill No. 2, an act to readjust the representation in the House of Commons, with instructions to prepare schedules to contain and describe the several electoral divisions entitled to return members to this house and to report the same, now present their second and final report:-
Your committee have prepared the descriptions and the return of members for the several electoral divisions which are set forth in the schedules hereto appended in respect of the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island and the Yukon territory.
The report of your committee is unanimous in so far as the same relates to Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Manitoba and the Yukon territory, and, although not unanimous as to the other provinces, represents a very substantial measure of agreement with respect thereto.
Accordingly the committee beg leave to report the said bill.
