George Perry Graham (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. GRAHAM:

There is a mistaken idea about these reports being of a public nature at all. As a matter of fact, this committee is acting in an advisory capacity to the government, and its reports are pretty much of the nature of a report that might be made by my right hon. friend's private secretary to himself. I have never made these reports public. I have received one of them myself. Most of them have been printed, but they have not been distributed. Some day I shall have no hesitation in giving copies of the reports to my right hon. friend, and then I think he will agree with me that they should not be made public so long as there is contention between our country and any other regarding certain matters.
