Mr. W. F. NICKLE (Kingston) presented the first report of the committee, as follows:
The Special Committee appointed to consider the question of consolidating the Votes and Proceedings and Journals of the House of Commons with a view to economy, beg leave to present -the following as their report:
Tour committee having carefully considered the matter recommend that the distribution of the bound copies of the Votes and Proceedings be dispensed with.
As the Journals in their present form show a great deal of unnecessary repetition and redundancy and the Votes and Proceedings as being at present compiled with the adoption of certain forms used in the Journals, -give a complete and accurate report of -the proceedings of the House, your committee are of the opinion that, a change would be advantageous both as -regards efficiency and economy and recommend that the record used at present as the Votes and Proceeding® be substituted for tha-t of the Journals, thus obviating the necessity of resetting the ty-pe for the Journals.
