Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, in two of the reports that have been presented reference
Combines Investigation Act
is made to the printing of certain documents. My memory is that some years ago the house provided for a special committee to consider what documents should be printed in the journals of the house, and as these recommendations contravene the provisions of that standing rule I suggest that some little consideration be given the matter before action is taken. At times every committee has the idea that it is highly desirable that the result of its deliberations should be printed, though I am bound to say that on careful consideration it does not always follow that an independent body reviewing those results would hold the same opinion. It was because of the vast expenditure that occurred in times past that the provision to which I refer was made. Under the circumstances I think it might be well that all these matters should stand before concurrence is asked, so that they may appear upon the order paper to-morrow and it may be clear just what is involved.
