Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Hon. members will recall that on March 9 I tabled a summary of the first one hundred orders in council passed after July 1, 1948, and the first one hundred passed after January 1, 1949, and said that other summaries would be provided if members of the house wished to have them.
I now wish to table summaries of all the orders in council from July 1, 1948, to September 30, 1948. The work of summarizing these is of some magnitude, and it is being proceeded with as expeditiously as possible. As soon as the summaries can be prepared, they will be tabled.
On the orders of the day:
Mr. J H. Harris (Danforlh): Will the Prime Minister supplement his statement with regard to the orders in council that are being reviewed and of which a summary is being made? Can he assure the house that the summary up to the moment of dissolution will be tabled before parliament is dissolved? Can he say whether they can all be tabled before dissolution?
Subtopic: TABLING OF SUMMARIES-JULY 1, 1948, TO SEPTEMBER 30, 1948
