PRIVILEGE

MR. HOWARD TREASURY BOARD REGULATION RESPECTING PRINTING BUREAU CHECK LIST

CCF

Frank Howard

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to raise a question of privilege which affects every member of parliament, and in doing so I must relate a few background facts. Under treasury board regulation T.B. 477983 the daily check list is the only medium through which persons and institutions, so entitled, may obtain government publications free of charge from the queen's printer. Such requests must be made via the check list within ten days of its publication.

The question of privilege, as this procedure applies to members of parliament, is that it works a decided hardship, because ofttimes, due to absence from Ottawa on official business during sessions of the house, and especially during recesses of the house, members are not able to indicate their requests within the ten day period, for they do not receive the check lists until after the ten day period has expired. In addition, there are instances when members, as the result of events many weeks subsequent to the issuance of a particular check list, realize that they require certain publications.

I hope the treasury board will, at an early date, undertake to amend this regulation in order that members of parliament may not suffer any further inconvenience.

Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

This is, perhaps, a matter of privilege, or a matter relating to the business of the house. In any event the hon. member has brought it to the attention of the house, and I take it he does not propose any further action at the moment.
