The restaurant committee is not a committee of the house, but is a joint
committee of the Senate and the House of Commons. At several meetings they have had under consideration the conduct of the restaurant, and came to the conclusion that there were many abuses which had to be rectified, more particularly in these days of war. The committee has met, and will again meet. May I say that these are the considered opinions of the committee, and are not those promulgated by the Clerk of the House, who is in fact only acting as the clerk of the committee. These other matters have to be taken into consideration. I rather think the committee may feel that they should make some report to the house respecting their deliberations, and their reasons for coming to this conclusion. That is a matter I shall bring before it, when the proper time comes.
