THE IMPERIAL CONFERENCE.

Mr. MONK.

Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day are proceeded with, I would like to ask when we shall be privileged to see a report of the last Imperial Conference. I presume that the notes have been extended; probably my right hon. friend has brought them back with him. Nothing could be of greater interest for us than to see exactly what has taken place at that important gathering. Also, will we

have a full report of all the proceedings of the conference, and not, as in the last instance, a very much reduced report for most of us, while a privileged few saw a verbatim Teport of all the proceedings. In this instance the conference is not one of a special nature, a conference of defence, but a general conference, and I hope we shall have the full report.

I hope the same thing, and I suppose the report will be published at an early day. I understand that it is now in the hands of the printer.

No. It is printed in England and is to be distributed as soon as it is printed.

Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).

Of course, it is very difficult to get any general supply if we are to rely on the British bluebook. 1 think on some occasions at least the book has been printed here in order that members of this House and of the Senate might have full information of what has taken place. Has the Prime Minister taken that into consideration?

Liberal

Sir WILFRID LAURIER.

On previous occasions we have had it reprinted, and there is no objection, if it is so desired, that it should be reprinted this time. I have nothing in my hand. The report is in the hands of the printer, and I expect it from day to day. We shall have a certain number of copies for distribution here and if they are not sufficient, we may have to reprint the report.

I think the document has been printed in Great Britain, because a copy came to hand to-day I do not know from what source it came.

The proceedings of the conference were printed from day to day, but the report is not finally struck until it is revised by each member of the conference. I sent my proof sheets just before I left England.

The document to which I allude purports to be a report of the conference. I do not know whether it has been revised or not, but it has an index of the various subjects at the commencement.

Mr. MONK.

I understood, from what appeared in the newspapers since my right hon. friend returned, that a copy had reached this country, that my right hon. friend in fact had brought back with him a. report of the conference, and I am a little anxious to know if we have to wait for the printing in England.

I am sorry to say that, as often happens, my hon. friend has been misinformed. I brought nothing back from the conference; I am no more privileged in that respect than my hon. friend. All I saw was the proof sheets and my last proof sheet was sent to the printer the day before I left England.
