Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, the other two bills that have been given second reading are bills in connection with which the evidence had been distributed. We come now to the first of a large number of bills up for second reading today in connection with which we do not have the evidence. I might point out that when we started this afternoon there were 111 divorce bills on. the order paper for second reading. Forty of those are bills in connection with which the evidence has been distributed, leaving 71 in connection with which we do not have the evidence.

I wonder whether the hon. member for Lisgar, who is sponsoring these bills, is in his mood of last Friday night or in his mood of last Tuesday night. I wonder whether he might consider allowing the 71, in connection with which we do not have the evidence, to stand?

Mr. Speaker:

The hon. member for Lisgar has consented. Does the house consent to the applications for divorce in connection with which the evidence has been distributed being read collectively at this time?

I think what the hon. member said was, he was prepared to let the 71 stand.

Mr. Knowles:

Do I have to go to bat again? In addition to the two that have already been read, Mr. Speaker, the bills in connection with which the evidence is in our hands are the

1170

Private Bills

following: 46, 52, 58, 59, 67, 68, 69, 70, 78, 88, 95, 97, 100, 102, 103, 109, 111, 113, 114, 115, 118, 121, 122, 123, 131, 133, 134, 135, 137, 139. I stop 'there to suggest that there is a typographical error on the order paper in the name in connection with Bill No. 139.

Mr. Knowles:

The next ones are: 140, 143, 151, 153, 154, 155, 156, 162. These bills total 38, and with the two that were passed previously make 40. I think that is enough divorces for the House of Commons to pass in one day.
