William Ross Macdonald

Mr. W. R. MACDONALD (Brantford City):

'Mr. Speaker, on Friday last I gave notice of a motion in regard to the Central Finance Corporation, which paid certain fees on its. application for an increase of capital last year, which increase was not granted. I now move, seconded by the hon. member for Halifax (Mr. Isnor):

That the Central Finance Corporation, having paid a fee of $1,400 on the introduction of a bill for increase of capital in the session of 1937, be not required to pay the fees chargeable on increase of capital, on the reintroduction of the same bill during the present session, notwithstanding standing order No. 93, paragraphs (3) and (4) of the standing orders of the House of Commons, and the amendment thereto of Mr. Dunning that this question be referred to the standing committee on standing orders.

Mr. DUNNING:

Yes, I made an amendment, when the matter was last before the

Henry Herbert Stevens

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

I submit, Mr. Speaker,

that it is not in proper form. The motion reads: "notwithstanding standing order 93," and so on. If the minister has now made an amendment to refer the matter to the committee on standing orders, I have nothing further to say.
