Hon. CHARLES MURPHY (Secretary of State).

I do not know that at the moment I can add anything to the information given yesterday. Like other ministers in charge of departments, I am dependent for information upon the officers who are charged with the actual carrying out of the work. In the main I think it will be found that the work at the Printing Bureau is done with as much expedition as is possible in work of that character. Speaking with the diffidence and lack of experience of a new member, may I say that I do not see the analogy between the printing and the issue of Hansard and the getting out of something altogether outside the regular line of work, such as the collection of evidence and the issuing of it in pamphlet form. If there be any means of expediting the work, I shall see that such means are adopted.
