Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

No work has been done. The original arrangement was for the construction of a joint section, dependent of course upon an agreement being reached between both railway companies with regard to * its construction. That agreement has not yet been signed, but I am informed that negotiations .are nearing completion- with respect to the terms of the agreement. If the House would pass the resolution and permit the introduction of the bill it could then be sent to the railway committee with the other branch line bills, where further details could be given if required by any members of the House.
Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in. Mr. Dunning thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 178, to
amend an act respecting the construction of a Canadian National Railway line being a joint section from Rosedale southeasterly, in the province of Alberta.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first and second time and referred to the select standing committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines.

Topic:   CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS
Subtopic:   EXTENSION OF TIME FOR CONSTRUCTION OF BRANCH LINE
