Mr. THOMAS REID (New Westminster):
I cannot agree with the statement that when a report of a committee passes this house it becomes an order. Year after year reports ' are made by committees and adopted by this
house, but their recommendations are never put into effect. I have not all the facts before me, but I understand that this company appeared before the committee last year knowing that they were not within the time limit for presenting a bill. They knew that penalties totalling' $700 would have to be paid1 in any event. In my judgment if the committee saw fit last year to a&k for $700, that should still stand this year. I join with those who are protesting against this action.
