Hon. H. H. STEVENS (Kootenay East):
I was not in the committee during the last few moments when, apparently, this report was agreed upon, but I am opposed to the suggestion that this committee should now sit while the house is in session. I do not think there is any need for it. I think it is unwise, unless in cases of absolute urgency, that committees should sit while the house is in session. Had I been in the committee I should have voiced my objection there, but I left just before the committee rose, and I assume that the report was agreed upon afterwards.
