Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

I tabled yesterday the fourth and final report of the royal commission established to inquire into violations of the Official Secrets Act. I intended at the time to ask the house for permission to have copies of that report printed so that they might be distributed, and as there is likely to be a demand on the part of members for such copies I would move, seconded by the Minister of Justice (Mr. St. Laurent):
That 2.500 copies in the English language and 1,500 copies in the French language of the fourth and final report of the royal commission established by order in council P.C. 411 of February 5, 1946, laid on the table of the house yesterday, be printed forthwith, and that standing order 64 in relation thereto be suspended.

Topic:   OFFICIAL SECRETS ACT
