Rt. H@

A few weeks ago the House ordered the appointment of a committee to investigate certain conditions under which the government grant to the Quebec Bridge Company had been made. All the papers connected with the bridge having now been printed, the time has ceme when the committee may be appointed. I therefore move :
That the select committee ordered by this House for the purpose of investigating the conditions and guarantees under which this government paid moneys to the Quebec Bridge Company and endorsed or guaranteed the bonds of the said company, and what measures were adopted by the government to ensure the preparation of suitable plans of construction and the proper execution of the same, and what security the government at present possesses for the sums already received by and guarantees given to the company, be composed of Messrs. Maclean (Lunenburg), Talbot, Galliher, Chisholm (Antigonish), Monk, Barker and Walsh (Huntingdon).
