INDIAN AFFAIRS

JOINT COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER AMENDMENTS TO ACT AND INDIAN ADMINISTRATION GENERALLY

LIB

James Allison Glen (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Hon. J. A. GLEN (Minister of Mines and Resources):

Mr. Speaker, with the consent of the house I should like to introduce a motion for the appointment of a committee to consider Indian Affairs. I make this request for the reason that, as I understand, the Senate will adjourn tomorrow and there is a joint committee appointed by the Senate to act in conjunction with the committee of the House of Commons. The motion is in substantially the same terms as those of the motion of last year, but there is a slight change in personnel, one hon. member having been substituted for another. I move:

That a joint committee of the Senate and the House of Commons be appointed to continue and complete the examination and consideration begun by a joint committee of the Senate and the House of Commons, pursuant to a resolution

Redistribution

Topic:   INDIAN AFFAIRS
Subtopic:   JOINT COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER AMENDMENTS TO ACT AND INDIAN ADMINISTRATION GENERALLY

Motion agreed to.


REDISTRIBUTION

READJUSTMENT OF REPRESENTATION IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS


Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 18, to readjust the representation in the House of Commons. He said: Mr. Speaker, this bill is to provide for redistribution under the provisions of the British North America Act as amended1 in 1946. The bill itself is in the form in which it has been since 1903, but is not identical with previous bills owing to the fact that the number of constituencies is now fixed at 255 and not subject to change as heretofore. As in the past it is intended to set up a special committee of the house composed of members of all parties to consider and recommend the boundaries of the constituencies to be adopted. When the bill has received second reading it will be referred to this committee with the schedule in blank. When the recommendations of the committee have been approved by the house, it will be incorporated in the schedule as a part of this bill. It is my intention to ask my colleague, the Secretary of State, to take charge of the bill on second reading. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
