Mr. A. N. SMITH (Stormont):

Mr. Speaker, I understand that the evidence in connection with these various bills is not even before the members of the house. Yesterday some sixty bills to which some members had objection went through the committee stage and were given third reading here, and later the evidence was handed to us. The same thing occurs again to-day; the standing committee has considered these bills without having the evidence before them, and I cannot see how that committee possibly could know what they were doing.
