Mr. LANCASTER:

I suppose it is clearly understood that it is still open to the Railway Committee to reject this Bill if they think it is not a proper Bill; otherwise 1 should ask the House to vote down the motion. There were other objections to the Bill than those mentioned by the hon. gentleman who makes this motion. As Chairman of the Railway Committee, I do not wish to oppose a re-hearing of this Bill if the House thinks it should be referred back to the committee, but I wish it to be understood that if the committee sees fit to reject the Bill it shall not be hampered by this action of the House.
