Mr. W. R. MACDONALD (Brantford City):
Mr. Speaker, with the leave of the house I move, seconded by the hon. member for Halton (Mr. Cleaver):
Whereas the Central Finance Corporation applied for change of its name and increase of capitalization at the last session of parliament, and paid a fee of $1,400, which is chargeable on the increase in capital, and also paid in addition thereto all other parliamentary fees;
And whereas on account of the shortness of the session of parliament, 1937, the bill was not presented to the House of Commons for third reading;
And whereas the said corporation is applying at the present session of parliament for the same increase in capital;
And whereas the said corporation is required this year to pay again all parliamentary fees in connection with its present application, and should be relieved only of payment of fees chargeable on increase of capital:
Therefore be it resolved that the Central l1 inance Corporation be not required to pay the fees chargeable on increase of capital, on its application now before parliament for increase of capital, notwithstanding standing order 93, paragraphs (3) and (4) of the standing orders of the House of Commons.
Subtopic: MOTION TO RELIEVE COMPANY OF REPAYMENT OF PARLIAMENTARY FEES
