Sir George Foster moved

that the orders in council laid on the table of the house on the 2nd April, 1918, be concurred in. He said: The orders in council which have been issued and laid on the table form a long list of two pages. They are formal to a certain extent, but the law requires that these orders in council when passed shall be laid on the table of the house within a certain time.

That is the situation at the present time. Orders in council have to be laid on the table of the house generally fifteen days after they are passed, or if parliament be not then sitting, within fifteen days of the commencement of the next session. Then Sir George Foster continued:

I think they are not law until they are so laid on the table of the house, and thereafter if approved by the house.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier replied:

These orders in council, as I understand the law, have to be submitted to the house and ratified by the house.
