Mr. L. Philippe Picard (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, as chairman of that committee, perhaps I may be permitted to give a word of explanation. About a year or so ago this method of recording proceedings was suggested when I was chairman of the public accounts committee, and the other day we

Privilege-Mr. Drew

tried this as a sort of exploratory experiment in order to determine whether such a system would be of assistance to the reporters and to enable them, if possible, to have a more accurate record of what is being said. The recording made the other day is now being transcribed and will be compared with the transcript made by the reporters, and a report will be made to Mr. Speaker and to the committee on house procedure in due course. There is nothing definite about this and I secured the permission of the Speaker to instal the machine. According to what I see reported in the Journal, it is quite true that people looked askance at this machine and treated it as if it were a box of snakes rather than just a reporting machine. The present record will be destroyed once it has been transcribed and the transcript submitted to the committee on house procedure.

I would emphasize that this experiment was undertaken to see if it could be of assistance. Reporting committees is quite a difficult task for new reporters, and there are two or three new ones on the present staff, and we hoped it would be of assistance in making a more accurate verbatim report of what was being said.

Mr. Picard:

May I be permitted to add, Mr. Speaker, that the recordings are now in the hands of the clerk of the committee and are being transcribed by government employees, namely stenographers from the committee branch. They are in the hands of government officials and not in my hands. They will be transferred to the Clerk of the House as soon as they have been transcribed.
