RULES OF THE HOUSE

SPECIAL COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER REVISION

LIB

Hewitt Bostock (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to lay on the table of the House the report of the committee appointed to consider jointly with me the advisability of revising the rules of the House. This report will appear in the journals of the House, and as it is very voluminous, its reading by the clerk assistant might perhaps be dispensed with.

GOVERNMENT OFFICES IN TORONTO

LIB

James Horace King (Minister of Public Works)

Liberal

Hon. J. H. KING (Kootenay, Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Church) inquired as to what representations had been made to my department regarding the renting of certain premises in Toronto. In reply, I may say that the government has been approached by those interested in the construction of a new and modern office building in that city, it being suggested that accommodation could be supplied for the Department of Customs and Excise and also for the Taxation branch. The two departments of the government, that is, the Department of Public Works and the Customs department, have been in conference on this subject with the view, if possible, of providing better accommodation for these departments in the city of Toronto.
