Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice):
Mr. Speaker, the other day the house agreed to appoint a special committee for the purpose of studying the Dominion Elections Act and the Dominion Franchise Act and possible amendments thereto, and it was suggested that this committee should consist of thirty members. In order to save time I would ask the consent of the house to make a motion to complete this committee to-day, as follows:
