PROVISIONS RESPECTING BRANCH LINES, GRAIN FREIGHT RATES, ETC.

LIB

George James McIlraith (President of the Privy Council; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Hon. G. J. Mcllraiih (President of the Privy Council):

I wonder whether the house would be ready to consider a motion of the Minister of Transport (Mr. Pickersgill) having to do with the railway legislation which was discussed at the question hour this afternoon. Could we agree to do that? It would enable the proper notices to be sent out to the various witnesses in good time. This motion simply refers the subject matter of the bill to the committee.

Hon. J. W. Pickersgill (Minister of Transport):

First of all I suppose I must move the second reading of the bill seconded by my colleague the Minister of Justice (Mr. Favreau). Then, I propose to ask the President of the Privy Council (Mr. Mcllraith) to move, seconded by the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Sharp) that the bill be not now read a second time but that the subject matter thereof be referred to the

standing committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines.

On a

point of order, does this motion not run counter to a decision of the Chair supported by a vote of the house last fall in connection with the farm syndicate bill?

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

LIB

George James McIlraith (President of the Privy Council; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Mr. Mcllraith:

Tomorrow we shall continue our consideration of the labour standards legislation, and when that is completed I would hope we can deal with some other matters on the order paper. Perhaps it would be useful if I were to indicate some of them, not necessarily in order of priority, so that

Business of the House

they may be on the record where members can refer to them.

There is the resolution and legislation on the Coal Production Assistance Act, item 58 on the order paper; the insurance and trust company legislation amendments, item 76; the Corporations and Labour Unions Returns Act amendment, item 54; and the Companies Act amendments, item 92. I would ask hon. members to look at this legislation with a view to the possibility of referring it to the banking and commerce committee for immediate study and return to the house.

Then there is the act respecting the Geneva conventions, item 48 on the order paper; the act amending the Privileges and Immunities (United Nations) Act, item 52; the Senate retirement legislation, item 40; the amendments to the international tax agreements, a bill which was given first reading today; the amendment to the Penitentiary Act, another bill which was given first reading today; the Canada Shipping Act, which I understand is now in committee, and the second reading of Bill No. S-2, respecting the Revised Statutes of Canada, item No. 15 on the order paper. I would call tomorrow any one of those items that would be agreeable to the house leaders of the opposition groups, after we have finished the labour standards bill.
