Hon. T. A. CRERAR (Minister of Mines and Resources):
Mr. Speaker, a few days ago the hon. member for Temiscouata (Mr. Pouliot) directed an inquiry to the government as to whether it was the intention to print in Votes and Proceedings of the house the speech delivered by the Prime Minister of Great Britain before the British parliament following the recent conference of prime ministers.
I have made some inquiries since the hon. member again brought up the matter yester-
City oj Ottawa-Joint Committee
day, and I may say it is not the intention of the government to have that speech recorded in the proceedings of the house. After all, the records of this house are for the discussions and debates which take place here. The speech of the Prime Minister of Great Britain is recorded in British Hansard, and has also been published in full in many of the newspapers of Canada.
Subtopic: SUGGESTED PUBLICATION IN VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF SPEECH OF MAY 24
