The MINISTER OF JUSTICE.

My intention was to provide for that in connection with section 15 which reads as follows :
The said commissioners shall have in respect to the said eastern division, in addition to all the rights and powers conferred by this Act, ail ithe rights, powers, remedies and immunities conferred upon a railway company under the Railway Act and amendments thereto, or under any general railway Act for the time being in force, and the said Act and amendments thereto, or such general railway Act, in so far as they are applicable to the said railway, and in so far as they are not Inconsistent with or contrary to the provisions of this Act, shall be taken and held to be incorporated in this Act.
They have all the powers that a railway company will have under the general Railway Act. That was the intention when we drafted section 15.
