Sir WILFRID LAURIER.
My hon. friend is too hasty in presuming that there is something mysterious in this. What is much more likely is that an error has occurred, as often happens. There is a disparity between the report as moved in the House and the resolution of the committee. But, my hon. friend knows that the chairman does not draw the report, That is drawn by the clerk, and it is very likely that the chairman signed it without looking at it carefully. Now that his attention is drawn to the matter, he will look into it.
