They are set put in the report which was made by the joint committee of the Senate and House of Commons, and which was appointed last session. The motion is that their report be adopted, and that these four gentlemen be appointed members of the joint committee. Their duties will be to take charge of the operations of the restaurant, and will be those of the ordinary club committee.

The House would like to have a little information as to these operations. What is it that is going to be established and how is it going to be paid for?

Mr. PUGSLEY.

I think not. It was submitted by Mr. Sutherland, and he asked me to make this motion. I regret that Mr. Sutherland is not here as he presented the report, and was on the joint committee of last year when he was Speaker of the House.

There is no very urgent haste in the matter. Perhaps the hon. gentleman will take some means of having that report made available to members in printed or some other form. I appreciate very much what has been done in connection with the placing of the restaurant on a better basis, but at the same time it would be well to know what we are doing before taking these steps.

Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

When will the balance of the evidence taken before Mr. Justice Cassels be printed. There is a very considerable amount of evidence yet to be printed, and it would expedite business if it were placed before the House at an early date so that we might come to a conclusion whether a debate is necessary.

Hon. CHARLES MURPHY (Secretary of State).

When a similar inquiry was made a short time ago, I sent to the Printing Bureau and found that the work was in progress and that considerable time was involved in getting the remaining volumes printed. I have asked for a definite statement to-night as to the time it will take to complete them and will try and have definite information for to-morrow.
