The PRESIDENT - The practice hitherto has been, on the presentation of a report from the Printing Committee, to have it read to the Senate. This has led sometimes to a waste of time, and honorable senators have not always been able to follow the report. It is proposed that in future these reports shall be printed in the Journals of the Senate. Honorable senators will then be in a position to peruse the reports for themselves, and when a motion is submitted for their printing to make any remarks they may think desirable on that motion. It is believed that this will better meet the convenience of honorable senators, and will lead to less waste of time than the reading of the report in accordance with previous practice.
