Mr. McTAGGART:

I think we should

appreciate the fact that there are in Canada, particularly in western Canada, a large number of rural constituencies. I do not know whether rule 15 applies to other than urban constituencies, and if not, I am not particularly concerned because I have the honour to represent a rural constituency. I think however, it would be impossible to get the ballot boxes distrubted to the various polls in seven days, and before we vote on this amendment I would like to have some assurance from the minister that where there are large rural constituencies,, they will be added to the schedule when we come to section 38.
