REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON BILLS NUMBERS 101 AND 115
Hon. HUGH GUTHRIE (Minister of Justice) presented the second report of the special committee to which was referred bill No. 101, respecting the franchise of electors at elections of members of the House of Commons and bill No. 115, respecting the election of members of the House of Commons.
PRINTING OF PARLIAMENT
Mr. W. CHESTER S. McLURE (Queens) moved:
That the first report of the joint committee of both houses on the printing of parliament, presented to the house Tuesday, June 26th, be now concurred in.
Motion agreed to.
CUSTOMS ACT AMENDMENT
Hon. R. C. MATTHEWS (Minister of National Revenue) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 124, to amend the Customs Act.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
Mr. Speaker, the department has been advised that in consequence of the amendment proposed to the Customs Act a slight amendment will have to be made to the Customs Tariff. Therefore leave will be asked to introduce that bill, which will constitute additional legislation, technically, to what I mentioned the other day, but it is complementary to the act that has just been before the house.
