Newton Wesley Rowell (Minister presiding over the Department of Health; President of the Privy Council)
If the hon. gentleman had waited he might noit have spoken with the feeling that he has manifested in his remarks. It is not my intention to ask the House to proceed with the second reading to-night but as I intend when the House gets into committee to submit some important amendments to the Bill I thought it would facilitate the consideration of the Bill if I put on record to-night what these amendments are, so that hon. members will have them in Hansard and know the character of the amendments before we proceed with the discussion of the second reading. I therefore arranged with the hon. the leader of the Opposition (Mr. King) that the second reading should be formally moved to-night in order that I might put upon Hansard the amendments I intend to ask the committee to consider when the Bill comes 'before it.
Subtopic: OPIUM AND DRUG ACT AMENDMENT.
