Hon. J. W. Pickersgill (Secrelary of Slate):

Mr. Speaker, perhaps I should say a word in explanation. The hon. member who is sponsoring this bill spoke to me about it. It is to correct an error that was made in connection with the revised statutes with regard to the name of the constituency of Swift Current-Maple Creek. The name was changed at the last session but only for the statute itself and not in the revised statutes. It is simply a correction of an omission.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
