Mr. J. E. ARMSTRONG:
Before the committee proceeds with this Bill, I should like to call your attention, Mr. Chairman, to the fact that before the words " Private Bills " on the Order Paper there is a note which reads as follows:
The letters E.F. denote those printed and distributed in both languages when the Orders were printed.
I notice that these letters do nof appear in connection with Bill No. 8 and Bill No. 24. I inquired at the distributing office, and the officer gave me to understand that these
Bills were not printed in French. Knowing as I do that hon. gentlemen from Quebec take a very active interest in these Bills, I request that the Bills be printed in French before they are proceeded with.
