Mr. T. GREENWAY (Lisgar) moved :

That the second report of the select standing committee on Agriculture and Colonization be concurred in.
He said : The committee has thought it desirable that a good deal of the evidence given before it, and which is of a most important character, should be printed as soon as possible and distributed in the agricultural districts. The report recommends that
20,000 copies of the evidence of J. A. Rud-dick, Dairy Commissioner, be printed in pamphlet form, 16,900 copies to be distributed to members of parliament, 3,000 copies to the Department of Agriculture for distribution, and 50 copies for the use of the committee. It also recommends that 20,000 copies of the evidence of Dr. William Saunders, Director of the Dominion Experimental Farm, be printed : that 20,000 copies of the evidence of each member of the official staff at the central experimental farm be printed, 19,400 copies of which shall go to members of parliament for distribution, 550 copies to each of the officials and 50 copies for the use of the committee, the proportion of French and English copies to be as usual. This was the unanimous report of the committee, in which I agree, and I trust the House will adopt the report.
