Wilfrid Laurier (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Sir WILFRID LAURIER.

I would advise my hon. friend not to press this motion to-day as I wish to look into the matter. There may be some objection to it.
Mr. SPROULEf I hope this motion will not be pressed. Under our rules ample notice is given to the world as to the time when these Bills should be introduced in order that the business of parliament may be proceeded with expeditiously. When such Bills are not introduced within the time limit theTe is a penalty of an additional fee provided, and if we remit the penalty it is better we should have no rule at all. If we once pass such a motion as this we will establish a bad precedent.
Motion allowed to stand.

Topic:   REFUNDING FEES ON PRIVATE BILLS.
