Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. NORTHRUP.

May I ask the lion. Solicitor General if he will be willing to consider any amendment that may properly be drawn up to bring in the new clauses that the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Roche) was suggesting in the Bill which lie proposes. I quite agree with the hon. Solicitor General, that in the particular form in which these clauses were introduced in the Bill to amend the Act respecting the North-west Territories, they could not be properly taken up in the consideration of the Election Act. But, I think the idea that my hon. friend from Marquette (Mr. Roche) had in his mind, could be framed in such a way that it would properly be an amendment to the Election Act. May I ask the Solicitor General to consider that before the Bill comes up again ?
