Hon. H. A. STEWART (Leeds):

I should like to direct a question to the acting leader of the government (Mr. Lapointe) and possibly to the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Cardin). In the votes and proceedings of Wednesday last appears the report from the joint committee of both houses on the library of parliament. The report recommends extensive alterations and changes in the library, involving adjustments in the lighting, the removal of the present flooring and the laying of an altogether different kind of floor. The present flooring is, of course one of the interesting architectural features of the library. Has any decision been made with regard to the adoption of these recommendations? I do not recall any item in the estimates, except possibly a general one, under which this matter could have been considered or discussed. I do ask that in view of the peculiar structure of the building, the floor and all the settings, nothing be done to impair the architectural beauty of the library.

Mr. STEWART:

I do not desire to violate the rules, but the minister has discussed one amendment; I take it that there are others. Does the issue relate to just one amendment; are the others which are set out in the votes and proceedings merely for the purpose of carrying it out?
