Hewitt Bostock (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to
inform the House that the Clerk of Petitions reports that he has examined the petition of W. J. Bartlett and others, of Vancouver and other places in British Columbia. The attention of the House is directed to the fact that the said petition is irregular in that it is addressed to the Right Honourable William Lyon Mackenzie King and the members of the government of Canada, and not to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled, and as it does not contain three signatures on the sheet containing the prayer of the petition, as required by rule 75, it should not be received.

Topic:   JAPANESE IMMIGRATION
Subtopic:   PETITION NOT IN REGULAR FORM-MOTION FOR ITS RETURN
