Mr. GARDINER:

The only suggestion I would make, having reference to the registration, is that if we are going to be able to complete it in the necessary time it may be that some information will have to go to the public before it is given to the house. However, we shall see to it that everything that does go to the public is put in the hands of members just as soon as we can get it there. Time is of the essence of this operation. If it were necessary to hold some action over from Friday night until Monday it might mean a delay of two or three days in getting the job done. I hope hon. members of the house will bear with us if at times we do hand out some information to the public in order that the public may be acquainted with what is going on and help to speed up the operation as much as possible.
