Last night the. Minister of Customs, who was leading the House, told us that if we reported this Bill it could stand for third reading until we ascertained if the Railway Bill was going through the Senate. If the Railway Bill is going through the Senate, there is no reason why we should give this Bill a third reading. If the Senate would just leave the Franchise Act where it is, and devote their attention to the Railway Bill, we might get that measure through.
