April 25, 1919 (13th Parliament, 2nd Session)

UNION

Arthur Meighen (Minister of the Interior; Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs)

Unionist

Mr. MEIGHEN:

There is no such list. This simply extends the effect of the Orders in Council until the prorogation of Parliament even though His Majesty or the Governor in Council may declare that peace now reigns. After that, Orders in Council may be rescinded. Some have already been rescinded, many of them in part, and that process may continue until the end of Parliament. There are none at the present time, as far as I know, which it is the intention specifically to rescind.

Topic:   THE WAR MEASURES ACT, 1914.
Subtopic:   EXTENSION OF OPERATION OF ORDERS AND REGULATIONS PASSED THEREUNDER.
