What is it ?
Report of the Commissioners on the Quebec Bridge.-Mr. Graham.
Bill (No. 190) an Act respecting Juvenile Delinquents.-Mr. Aylesworth.
Mr. PARMELEE moved that the fifth report of the Joint Committee of both Houses of parliament, be concurred in.
What is it ?
It is the customary report dealing with the printing and nonprinting of parliamentary documents, nothing special.
Motion agreed to.
Before the orders of the day are called, I would like to ask if any report of the commission under Judge Cas-sels has yet been laid on the table of the House.
The clerk of the House informs me that he has communicated with the clerk of the court and requested that we be furnished with a copy. But it has not yet arrived.
Is it the case that Judge Cassels lias adjourned his investigation until some time in September, and if so, has he the authority and consent of the government to do that?
I have no information on the subject except what I read in the newspapers. Judge Cassels is the master of his own court, and it is for him to determine how he shall proceed.
Is the evidence taken in the investigation being held by Judge Cassels to be published ?
I am not aware whether that point has been considered.
Mr. R. L. BORDEN.
I desire to ask the Minister of Railways whether he hopes to furnish the information at an early date which I asked for a week ago yesterday ?
I am endeavouring to get it, the order is a large one. I hoped to give it to the House when I was making some statement about the Grand Trunk Pacific and the Transcontinental. I thought that was the object of my hon. friend, to have it when the estimates came up. However, I can furnish it to him in advance as soon as I get it.
