The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 57

Mr. Bompas, Q.C.:

Mr. Bompas, Q.C.:

Even as the resolution now stands, Sir, it seems to me that it is open to some extent to the objection raised by Sir Charles Tupper, whereas the first minute submitted by the Committee seems to me to exactly correspond to the wishes of the meeting. It does not definitely bind us on any point, but declares that the Colonies should have "an page 49 adequate voice in the control" of the Empire. What that adequate control shall be is a matter for the Committee to decide. Surely, nobody will deny that they ought to have an adequate control, and a fair share in sustaining the responsibilities of the Empire. What that fair share shall be may be left for minute consideration. Federation, as I understand, means that and something more. I beg to move the first minute as an amendment.
