November 16, 1953

Mr. Pickersgill:

The explanatory note says that the purpose of this bill is to avoid the unnecessary expense of printing new election material by authorizing material already printed as required by the Canada Elections Act of 1938 to be used in any by-elections and Northwest Territories elections from now until the next general election. Legislation is required because of the coming into effect of the Revised Statutes of Canada, 1952, on September 15 of this year.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
