Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice):
In answer to the hon. member, I do not see any private bills on the order
paper for to-day, the reason probably being that the officers of the house knew that private bills could not be taken up. The question, however, raised by him will be given consideration, and if possible we might expedite the second readings of private bills.
