I do not intend to press the Bill to a final reading to-night. My hon. friend has already brought this point to my attention, and I think there is something in it. It would be quite right, in the case of the Intercolonial, to give the appointing of the third arbitrator to an outside tribunal, in case the two others could not agree, but as I do not intend to press the Bill to its third reading, my hon. friend will have an opportunity to make any suggestion at the final stage of the Bill, and have it amended to meet the difficulty he mentions.
