Mr. CALDWELL:

I understand the minister said that the Printing Bureau had received only one protest. I have felt like

fMr. Arthurs.]

protesting to everybody I have met, but I could not find anybody who would take the responsibility. I think the Printing Bureau print what they are instructed to print, and I do not think this should be laid at their door at all. It is very inconvenient and I cannot agree with the view that it will save money. To my mind, it will cost more to bind a separate volume of the index than the cost of the quantity of paper used to print four other copies of the index. As regards the saving of time, the volumes are not much good until the index is printed, and I doubt if the volumes were distributed until the index was printed. Possibly this was done with a good object in view, but I do not think it should be done again and I hope it will not be. Every member to whom I have spoken about the matter-and I have spoken about it to a good many-has felt as I do. I think every hon. member who does not approve that method of printing should register his protest. I am going to register mine as definitely as I can. A member sends a page to the library for a volume and he has to send again to get the index. It is veiy convenient, when you get a volume out of the library or any other place at your home, not to have to lug around two volumes in order to find what you want to find. I hope this practice will be discontinued. I do not think it is economical. I know it is inconvenient and I seriously hope it will not be continued.

Mr. CALDWELL:

I am afraid they will not choose to; they never have chosen before. We asked our provincial government for bread and they gave us a stone. I am much disappointed. I thought from the research work that had been carried on by Dr. Tory and from the recommendations from the Banking and Commerce Committee along this line, this government would bring down a real rural credits act of its own, to be administered, possibly, by provincial boards. But this act will be of no benefit in New Brunswick, and I doubt if it will to any of the Maritime provinces. It may be of some benefit to some provinces that have rural credit acts in operation; it will enable them to secure additional money to carry on. I am surprised that there is not some limit set to the amount each province will be allowed to get from the Dominion government under this act. Suppose Ontario makes an application to-morrow for $10,000,000 under this act, what is going to happen?
