That a sessional committee on railways and shipping owned, operated and controlled by the government, be appointed to consider the accounts and estimates and bills relating thereto of the Canadian National Railways, the Canadian National (West Indies) Steamships, and Trans-Canada Air Lines, saving always the powers of the committee of supply in relation to the voting of public moneys; and that the said committee be empowered to send for persons, papers and records and to report from time to time, and that notwithstanding standing order 65, in relation to the limitation of the number of members, the said committee consist of Messrs. Adamson, Beaudry, Bourget, Carter, Cavers, Chevrier, Cleaver, Follwell, Fraser, George, Gillis, Hatfield, Healy, Helme, James, Knight, Macdonald (Edmonton East), McCulloch, McLure, Mott, Mutch, Picard, Pouliot, Thomas, Tustin.

He said: This, Mr. Speaker, is the usual

motion which, is made every year prior to the establishment of the railways and shipping committee to which are referred the annual report of the Canadian National Railways, the report of Trans-Canada Air Lines and certain other items of the estimates which are withdrawn from the committee of supply. It is in the same form as it was last year.

Mr. Chevrier:

My understanding is that it has never been the practice to announce a motion such as this the evening before; certainly it has not been done in the five years I have been in the Department of Transport.
