Mr. H. M. MOWAT (Parkdale) presented the second report of the Select Standing Committee on Standing Orders as follows:
The Select Standing Committee on Standing Orders beg leave to present the following as their second report:
Tour committee has had under consideration the petition of William Louis Scott and others for an Act of incorporation under the name of the British Canadian Insurance Company-in Bill B2 of the Senate named United Canadian Insurance Company-and also the report, dated 18th May, 1918, of .the examiner of Petitions for Private Bills thereon, stating that the notice of application had only been published for three consecutive weeks in the Canada Gazette instead of five consecutive weeks as required by Buie 91.
As your committee has informed itself on the matter and had explanations made and is of opinion that no interests either public or private, will be prejudicially affected by the
shortage of notice in this case, it recommends that the notice, as published, be deemed sufficient.
