April 10, 1934 (17th Parliament, 5th Session)


Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

I mentioned yesterday that the report of the royal commission on Newfoundland was a document over which we had no jurisdiction. It was printed in England, in fact, but after the hon. member for Temis-couata (Mr. Pouliot) had made some observations in the early part of the session steps were taken to procure a few extra copies. I now table one copy, with a memorandum issued by the lords of the treasury. There are also being deposited in the library of parliament as many as perhaps twenty copies, and there are also a few copies available at the office of the Secretary of State for External Affairs, and if any hon. member is particularly interested in securing a copy they will be furnished as long as they last. In the meantime this copy is being tabled for the edification of the hon. member for Temiscouata.
