Robert Laird Borden (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

I would ask my hon. friend (Mr. Geoffrion) whether he denies that there has been a change in the recommendation. I do not understand that my hon. friend denies that; I do not understand the Prime Minister denies it, because we have the papers here to show exactly what took place. The recommendation of the committee was in these words:
Mr. Lennox moved that the committee recommend that their proceedings and the evidence taken by them be printed and reported to the House from day to day.
That motion was agreed to, but the report which is made to the House omitted the important words: ,
* and reported to the House/
There has obviously been a change. My hon. friend (Mr. Geoffrion) does not deny there has been a change. Was that change a mistake or was it intentional?
