The minister is supposed to sit in the Railway Committee, of which he is generally a member, and I have never known of a case where the minister disapproved of a Bill going through the Railway Committee. I have been for years opposed to the duplication of lines, and this amendment is largely with reference to that. I would like, also, to draw the attention of the minister to these words in clause 7: " company, municipality, or person." What is meant by " company"?
