SOUTH WATERLOO VOTERS' LISTS.

CON

George Adam Clare

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. G. A. CLARE.

Mr. Speaker, lief ore tlie Orders of the Day are called, I wish to ask the Prime Minister (Sir Wilfrid Laurier) a question regarding the voters' list of South Waterloo. To make my statement clear I may say that the right hon. Prime Minister, in reply to my hon. friend from Peel (Mr. Rlain) a few days ago gave a list of voters' lists which hail been printed, and amongst those were the lists for South Waterloo. Two or three days after I wrote to the King's Printer, asking if I could get the lists for South Waterloo, and, he replied that :

The lists are not ready for distribution, but as soon as they are printed copies will be sent to you.

There must be some misunderstanding, because if they are printed I should be able to get them.

I.C.R.-PENSIONS.


1. This is a matter of interpretation, but clause 22 of the Militia Bill interprets 'corps' to mean the following : (a.) ' Corps ' means a military body appearing in the list of establishments as a separate unit. I think this is the meaning under the present law. 2. The mode of redress is fixed by the Army Act, par. 42.

A pension scheme, prepared by a joint committee of the management and employees of the Iiilcn'olonlal Railway was presented during the present session of parliament to the Minister of Railways, and he gave the matter consideration and study, with the result that a Bill was drawn up, and the data as to the employees of the road, furnished by the Railway Department, as respects both the Intercolonial and Prince Edward Island Railway, was submitted to an actuary for cpmputation as to results. The work of the actuary and his assistants took up about two months of time. The final report of the actuary was only received by the Minister of Railways about a week ago. The Bill and report of the actuary have been submitted to the government for consideration ; but owing to the extreme lateness of the session it has been deemed impracticable to undertake to
