Edward Arthur Lancaster

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. LANCASTER:

I beg to move.:
That owing to the advanced period of the session, Rule 28a, paragraph a, subsection 3 of Rule 89, subsection 1 of Rule 103, and Rules 114 and 115 relating to Private Bills be suspended for the remainder of this session, in accordance with the recommendation contained in the tenth report of the Select Standing Committee on Railways, Canals and Telegraph Lines.
I might say in support of the motion that this was moved yesterday by the hon. member for North Ontario (Mr Samuel Sharpe), chairman of the Committee on Miscellaneous Private Bills, and recommanded both by that committee and the Committee on Railways, Canals, and Telegraph Lines. I could read the rules we are suspending, but it is sufficient. I think, to say that they are those which *make it necessary to go through formalities which entail delay, and if we are going to prorogue at the time contemplated, we would not be able to put these Bills through unless the motion is carried.

Topic:   PRIVATE BILLS.
Subtopic:   CERTAIN RULES SUSPENDED.
