Stuart Sinclair Garson (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. Garson:

While I appreciate the magnificent co-operation of members in rushing my legislation through in this way, I do not think it would be fair to those members who are particularly interested in the terms of the bill to proceed without having copies before them. I therefore suggest that the committee rise and report progress.

Section stands.

Progress reported.
