Mr. Jean Frangois Poulioi (Temiscouata):
Mr. Speaker, as chairman of the debates committee of the House of Commons I rise to say a word about a noncontentious matter, namely, the publication of Hansard of yesterday, with the full speech of the Minister of Finance and a lengthy appendix. Every hon. member has before him this morning the English text of Hansard in book form, including the speech of the Minister of Finance, with seven tabulations, an appendix, fifty-two other tabulations and eleven full pages of supplementary detailed tables.
It is my great pleasure to pay a special tribute to the king's printer and to the whole staff. Sometimes we have to complain about certain things, but at this time the whole personnel of the printing bureau deserves special praise. The work could not have been done anywhere else except in the printing department of the New York Times-and my remark applies to the whole of North America. I know of no other place where such a piece of work could have been done so well and so expeditiously.- I do not pay a tribute only to the higher-ups of the printing bureau-they deserve it; but I have in mind also the humble typesetter and proofreader. I know what it is to publish books, and this book, sir, is a credit to the members of the staff of the printing bureau. I hope that the minister will tell them it is the desire of the house to praise them and to encourage them to continue to do such fine work in the future.
