Liberal

Mr. ABBOTT:

Briefly, the purpose of the bill which will follow is to amend the provisions of the Militia Pension Act, to bring them substantially into agreement with the Civil Service Superannuation Act. I thought that if the resolution were adopted this morning and first reading given to the bill, so that the bill might go before hon. members, they would appreciate the nature of the proposed amendments.
Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in. Mr. Abbott thereupon moved for leave to introduce bill No. 392, to amend the Militia Pension Act.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
