Mr. BERGERON.

I am glad my hon. friend has made this motion because this question has been talked off for a number of years and nothing has ever been done, notwithstanding that the administration of the restaurant has always been very defective. When Mr. Hyman was Minister of Public Works he spoke of using part of the new wing as a restaurant and I should like to know if that is the intention.

Mr. PUGSLEY.

The plans for the new wing have no doubt been prepared with the idea that the large room In the upper portion of the building should be utilized for the restaurant and with the convenience of tiie elevator which is to be installed it would be admirably adapted for that purpose. Those of us who have been giving attention to the matter thought it would be very desirable if the Senate would concur with the House of Commons in arranging for a joint restaurant. This committee will confer with a committee of the Senate with a view of endeavouring to come to an understanding which would be mutually agreeable.
