Mr. T. S. SPROULE (East Grey).
Before the motion is adopted, I would like to remind the Prime Minister that he has intimated that this was intended to be a short session. That can only be accomplished by adhering as closely as possible to the rules respecting the reception of private Bills. We have today adopted a course which we have pur-
sued in the past, it is true, but which if it is continued this session we cannot hope to make the session reasonably short. I would suggest to the right bon. gentleman that it would be well not to have too many repetitions of this, or otherwise the session cannot be kept within reasonable bounds.
