Mr. LANCTOT.

The hon. minister must certainly know that a parcel of land has been bought last summer in order to satisfy his own department. Mr. Bourgeois was obliged to pay two hundred dollars for that," piece of land. That occurred six months ago, it is only fair to refund that amount to that gentleman.

Mr. SPEAKEE@

As this report involves an expenditure of money, it seems to me very doubtful whether it is regular. The report is:

Your committee recommend that one hundred and fifty thousand (150,000) copies of the evidence of Dr. James W. Eobertson, Chairman, Committee on Lands, Commission of Conservation, given before the committee on Thursday, January 25, 1912, be printed forthwith in pamphlet form, in the usual numerical proportions of English and French, as advance sheets of the committee's final report, for distribution as follows140,000 copies to members of parliament, 6,000 copies to Department of Agriculture, 2,500 copies to witness, 1,500 copies for use of committee. .

I am not aware that there is any authority for incurring the expenditure necessary for this purpose, rand I draw the attention of the House to the matter, so that it may be looked into

My attention was not directed to the character of the report, but I am under the impression that similar reports have been received in the past. I would suggest that the matter stand for a day until your honour has an opportunity of looking into it.

Mr. SPEAKEE, I know that this has been done in the pas-t, but I have always believed that it was wrong. We have a rule that provides that all proposals for printing should go before the Printing Committee. In this case the proposal would not go before the Printing Committee at all.

Mr. STEVENS.

This very point was before the Printing Committee this morning, Mr. MONK.

and a resolution was incorporated in the report of that committee asking that all proposals for printing be passed through that committee. It was pointed out that frequently a great deal of matter that is printed is left about the building, and the committee wished to have some oversight of the printing in order to see that everything printed was utilized and nothing wasted.

Mr. SEXSMITH.

The object of this report of the Committee on Agriculture is to prevent what the hon. member has just referred to. If this matter has to go before the Committee on Printing, the evidence will not be printed in time to go into the hands of the members this session. Then the great bulk of it will be sent to their homes, and will not reach the people for whom it is intended.

The Postmaster General is anxious to be present when the debate with reference to the resolution I have on the orcjer paper is continued. I understand that the Postmaster General will he unable to be here next Monday and he gave me to understand last night that he would arrange with the Prime Minister with reference to that debate.

The Postmaster General has not spoken to me on the subject; I presume the matter has escaped his attention. What was the exact nature of the

arrangement?
