The House in Committee on Bill No. 46, respecting the Erie, London and Tillsonburg Railway Company-Mr. Morphy. Mr. Blon-din in the Chair. [DOT]
Mr. LANCASTER. This charter covers a line from Port Burwell to London through Aylmer, and from a point between Port Burwell and Aylmer to Tillsonburg. It has been renewed twice, and this is the third renewal. We did not change section 1 as printed. As to section 2, the old Bill gave water-powers which were wider than those we now allow; so we imposed the condition that if they wished renewal, they must accept the standard clause. We repeal the sections of their charter relating to this as well as that relating to the time limit and enact three standard clauses.
Bill reported, read the third time and passed.
