Hon. Mr. SUTHERLAND.

It is quite customary, in fact, it is usual, when important amendments are asked for to a Bill, to have them reprinted. In this case the solicitor seems to have had the whole Bill redrafted and submitted to the committee, and it was adopted in that shape, instead of adding to it the proposed amendments or changes. My hon. friend will remember that practically a new Bill was submitted. It is the practice to reprint a Bill so that every member may have a copy of the suggested amendments, and, all cost of printing with regard to all these Bills will be deducted.

Topic:   MANITOBA RAILWAY BILLS.
