OFFICIAL REPORT OF DEBATES


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Charles Benjamin Howard

Liberal

Mr. C. B. HOWARD (Sherbrooke):

I

should like to draw to the attention cl the house a matter which I think is of extreme importance and that is the publication of Hansard. Hansard is published in English and translated into French, 'but the French translation does not get into the hands of the public until at least two days after publication in English. In the mixed papulation of the eastern townships this does not give a fair chance to our Freneh-Canadian friends and I should like to know if you, Mr. Speaker, would take steps to have the translation made, if possible, so that the French and English copies of Hansard would be published cm the same day.

Mr. SPEAKER:

It takes one day for the printing in English before that can be translated. I shall, however, look into the matter and if the situation requires adjustment, I shall endeavour to secure more expeditious translation.
