Mr. GEOFFRION.

I do not exactly remember what was agreed upon ; my "hon. friend says something was agreed upon. I think it was only discussed in committee, and the promoters of the Bill consented to all the amendments which were proposed. Now we come before this committee, and the hon. gentleman says it was agreed that some other amendment should be made. I do not remember any such promise on the part of anybody. I think the clause the chairman has just read is sufficient. I do not see why we should drop the Bill at this stage, after all the consideration we have given it.
