Progressive Conservative

Mr. Chown:

Mr. Speaker, since this bill was considered by the standing committee on miscellaneous private bills further consideration has been given to it by certain members of the committee who feel now that they would like to hear further evidence, particularly of the co-respondent, in order to satisfy themselves that there will not be a gross miscarriage of justice.

In addition, some of them wish to discuss the bill, and they have indicated to the chairman and others on the committee that they wish to discuss it and the evidence thereon on its merits and, for this reason, pursuant to a precedent in the Journals of 1931, at page 552, I have made the motion to have it put back on the order paper.

Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

Yes. Since I was advised that this motion was to be made I have considered it, and there is precedent for a motion to restore a bill to the order paper which, if accepted, would restore the bill and bring it up for consideration with other private bills.
