Progressive

Mr. NEILL:

The object of this legislation is to provide that any paper, or pamphlet, or circular, printed and intended for publication and distribution, shall contain on it the name and address of the publisher. The object of this is to facilitate the identification of the publisher of any circular, or pamphlet, or article, of that character. It is becoming increasingly frequent now that we find pamphlets circulated, containing, as this explanation states, "false, defamatory and libellous statements," sometimes seditious statements, which are intended for circulation in an anonymous way. This will check that. I may say that the legislation follows that in Britain going as far back as the year 1839 and revised since then.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time. QUESTIONS
