Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

They are not yet printed.

I understood the hon. member wanted to know what was in them and what was not in them, as finally passed.

Mr. YOUNG:

I want to have the bill as it is finally passed, so I may take it home and tell people what is in it. I am told these bills will not be available until the published volume comes out some months later.

Mr. GUTHRIE:

I believe they are published in the Canada Gazette almost immediately after their passage. If the hon. member will look in the Canada Gazette he will find them.

Mr. POULIOT:

I am sorry, but the minister is mistaken. I must tell him that the bills are not printed in the Canada Gazette. Sometimes orders in council are printed, but not as many as we would wish. It is a fact that the bills are not so printed. I am very sorry that the Minister of Justice has to slip like that; I am very sorry for him. Rut what happens? The minister has made the mistake in this way: It is the official gazette of the province of Quebec which publishes a supplement in French and English of the public bills. It is bilingual, and I believe in this respect the province of Quebec has set a good example for the dominion government to follow.

Mr. POULIOT:

I do not see why we should go into the corridors like messenger boys to get copies of bills. It should be the business of the Minister of Justice to see to it that every member of parliament is supplied with a complete set of the bills that have been passed, so that they can be obtained immediately after parliament prorogues.

I suggest that the hon. member bring in a bill to that effect. Under the law now and for the last sixty years these bills have not been printed.

The hon. gentleman says that no bills are ready, but he told us a minute ago to go to the Senate. If they do not exist how can you get them?

Mr. GUTHRIE:

I said you could get a copy of the bill at the Senate at any time. The clerk of the Senate will give it. I have received them the day after prorogation, certified with a big seal on them.

Mr. POULIOT:

I do not care for the seal; what I want is the bill. The Minister of Justice told us to go to the Senate to get the bills, and now he says that the bills are not printed. What does his explanation mean?
