April 3, 1916 (12th Parliament, 6th Session)

CON

Edgar Nelson Rhodes (Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees of the Whole of the House of Commons)

Conservative (1867-1942)

The CHAIRMAN:

I believe the practice is that it is not within the power of the committee to take any action in the matter. Any action suggested as being necessary ought to have been taken before the second reading of the Bill. The Bill being properly before the committee as it is now, it is not competent for the hon. gentleman to raise the point.

Topic:   PRIVATE BILLS.
