The MINISTER OP RAILWAYS AND CANALS (Hon. A. G. Blair).

I think the section as proposed is all right. The only criticism I would pass upon it would be that it might be put in the form of a clause of eight or ten words to the effect that the right of the company to levy tolls would be subject to the provisions of the Railway Act. However I have no objection to the clause as it is drawn, for the Railway Committee of the Privy Council will have power to reduce the tolls, and no tolls will be legally recoverable unless the Governor in Council approves of the by-law fixing them.
