Hon. C. J. DOHERTY (Minister of Justice) moved that the amendment made by the Senate to Bill No. 65 to amend the Companies Act be concurred in.
He said: The amendment, I think, is an improvement to the Bill. The Bill simply provides that for the purpose of complying with the requirement of the Companies Act any agreement shall be deposited with the Secretary of State, but that in the case of an agreement from the province of
Quebec, which is in notarial form, it shall be sufficient to file a copy of the original. The amendment that the Senate has made is to make that the provision shall operate as from the passing of the clause in the Companies Act in order that copies that have been deposited under the Act up to the present shall avail as well as those which may fee produced in future.
Motion agreed to and amendment concurred in.
