Mr BRUCE - The Constitutional Commission has not been in existence for anything like two years ; it was appointed about twelve months ago. There are no grounds for the suggestion that the commission intends to delay its report. Regarding the question why this Parliament has not had an opportunity of considering alterations of the Constitution, I have already fully stated the grounds which led the Government to appoint this commission. lu view of the great complexity and difficulties surrounding the subject, and the lack of reliable information to guide members of Parliament in any discussion, it was felt essential to have an investigation made prior to the submission to this House of questions relating to an alteration of the Constitution.
