DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY OF NOVA SCOTIA. 1867.
MONDAY, March 25th.
- (p. 79)
Hon. Provincial Secretary introduced a bill to amend Chap. 2 of Revised Statutes relative to Executive and Legislative disabilities. He said that the object was to prevent parties who held seats in either branch of the local Parliament holding seats in the Senate or House of Commons of the Confederated Provinces. The government were of opinion that the effect of a party thus holding two seats and discharging responsibilities to more than one constituency would be unfavorable to the public interests.
The bills relating to the Local Constitution were made the order of the day for Friday next.
