Rt. Hon. Sir WILRID LAURIER (Prime Minister) :

1. No complaints have been heard, excepting recently concerning a delay in issuing the current number of the Supreme Court Reports.
2. (a.) The cause is the pressure on the bindery in consequence of the early session. To prevent delaying the House it was necessary to give precedence to departmental reports. During the last two months the pressure has been very exceptional.
(b.) For years the accommodation at the bureau has been insufficient. Changes are now in progress to extend the space for the bindery. In the meantime the departmental reports for this year are nearly all issued. The delayed number of Supreme Court Reports will be issued early this week.
3. The Registrar of the Supreme Court in common with other officials has not the power under the law to place printing outside of the Printing Bureau.
