PRINTING OF PARLIAMENT


Ri£ht Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) moved: That all papers laid on the table do stand referred to the joint committee on Printing for consideration for the purpose of reporting as to whether they are to be printed or not.


LIB

Hewitt Bostock (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

Answering a question put to me sotto voce by the hon. member for South York (Mr. Maclean), who inquired what was the purpose of the motion that has just been moved by the right hon. the Prime Minister, I might explain that in the old days all the papers tabled were printed, and in consequence the volumes were very bulky and contained much useless printed matter. A committee of the House, when we were sitting in the Victoria Museum, decided that the committee on Printing should make a selection of the papers to be printed and determine what should and what should not be printed. That has been the practice now for the last six or seven years, and that is the purpose of the motion which has just been presented.
