Hon. CHARLES MURPHY (Russell):

I do not rise for the purpose of offering any objection to the adoption of the motion, but I observe that a portion of the report relates to reducing the quorum of this important committee to five members.
I do not know what may have arisen to induce the committee to make that recommendation, but that is a very small quorum to consider the important principle embodied in the Bill, and unless some very good reason is given it strikes me that the recommendation should not be concurred in.

Topic:   FIRST REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE
