Wilfrid Laurier (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)
Sir WILFRID LAURLER.
Mr. Speaker, early in the session a Bill was introduced by the hon. member for South Grey (Mr. Miller) which is Bill (No. 6) on the Order Paper, to amend the Criminal Code so as to prohibit betting on race tracks. That Bill was referred to a special committee which has given it a great deal of attention and has now made a report. The Bill has excited a good deal of public interest and I now move, with the object of disposing of the matter, that item 39 on the order I paper be now called.
Mr. SPEAKEK called Order 39:
House in committee on Bill (No. 6), an Act to amend the Criminal Code (reported from Special Committee as amended).-Mr. Miller.
Subtopic: RACE TRACK GAMBLING.
