May 30, 1930 (16th Parliament, 4th Session)


Murray MacLaren

Conservative (1867-1942)


I wish to draw attention to the date: "1S67 to 1927". Under those circustances it should not have gone beyond the year 1918. There are only one or two other little things I might,point out. There is put in smaller type in brackets "The text of Quebec resolutions, 1864, and London resolutions, 1866." Why that should be in brackets is difficult to understand, and, moreover, I do not understand why it should be "the text" any more than the text of the British North America Act. The London resolutions are put in as an appendix. Unless that is done 2419-1861
on the principle that the tail wags the dog,
I do not see the justification for it. The London resolution should receive a more prominent and definite position as being the basis of the British North America Act. Would the minister take this matter up carefully with his department? I am satisfied we could have a much more valuable addition to the library and the facilities for members by a better selection of the contents. I believe the minister is interested, and I am sure he would like to have the thing done properly.
