Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
I should like to lay on the table two copies of the first consolidated index and table of amendments of statutory orders and regulations published since the Regulations Act came into effect. Perhaps it would be useful if I gave a short word of explanation of the consolidated index and table of amendments.
Hon. members will recall that the consolidation of the statutory orders and regulations is as of the 31st of December, 1949. This index is an alphabetical index of all orders and regulations passed during the year 1950, with an indication of the publication and the page at which they are to be found.
There is also an index in the form that has become traditional in our statutes, of the orders and regulations themselves, in alphabetical order, with an indication of the amendments thereto made during the year 1950. It is the intention to have the consolidated index and table of amendments kept up to date quarterly. Therefore each quarter there will be a new edition which will enable those who wish to consult these orders and regulations to have in convenient form an indication of what is in the five volumes of consolidation, and an indication of what has been done with respect to any order or regulation since that time.
