Mr. C. A. WILSON:

Parliament has full control of Hansard, and it is up to the Debates Committee or the Government, whichever is the proper authority, to prevent any particular issue of Hansard being circulated, if that is desired. But certainly we have the right to discuss the action, of the censor. We have also the right to let this matter be placed on Han6aTd, and then it is for the government to decide whether this particular issue of Hansard shall be circulated or not. I have often heard the Prime Minister intimate that certain things should not be reported in Hansard.
