Sir WILFRID LAURIER:

The House
will readily understand that the subject of railway legislation is one which is liable to open the door to many amendments and suggestions, but in these war times I suppose that everybody would agree to pass what is, as I understand it, simply a consolidation of the different Railway Acts. That would be very convenient and useful and I see no objection to introducing the Bill and disposing of it as my right hon. friend suggests.
The only other thing of importance is the passing of a vote on account for supplies, which I understood my right hon. friend to say he desires until the 30th of June.

Topic:   IMPERIAL WAR CONFERENCE.
Subtopic:   BUSINESS OP PARLIAMENT-PROPOSED ADJOURNMENT.
