UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR PAPERS
QUEBEC RIOTS-COLONEL MACHIN'S REPORT
BILL TO AMEND THE RAILWAY ACT, 1919
On the Orders of the Day:
Hon. GEORGE P. GRAHAM (Minister of Railways and Canals): If I might be allowed to do so on the orders of the day, I desire to give to the House certain information concerning amendments which I propose to move in committee, to Bill No. 181, to amend the Railway Act, 1919. I do this in order that hon. members may have on Hansard notice as to what these amendments are. Personally I am of the opinion that they make no difference in the bill, but they may strengthen it. At the end of subsection (5) of section 3 I shall move to add the following: but shall apply to all the territory west of Fort William covered by tariffs filed with the board under the terms of said agreement at the date of the passing of this act and to all lines of railway now or hereafter constructed by any company subject to the jurisdiction of parliament within such territory.
I shall also move to amend subsection (6) of section 3 by inserting after the word "thereto" in the sixth line the words "within the territory."
