Sir ROBERT RORDEN:

Mr. Speaker, I
sent a telegram, through His Royal Highness the Governor General, to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in regard to the position of the Bill to extend the life of this Parliament one year. The telegram was sent two days ago, but I have not yet received a reply. However, I have a memorandum from the law clerk of the House of Commons, who states that he'has just received a copy of the Bill, and that it was introduced into the Imperial House of Commons by the Secretary of State for the Colonies on the 3rd day of May.
