THE COMING SESSION.
GOVERNMENT 18 READY
ONE WELCOME ECONOMY
"The Government Bills will be ready when the House meet?," said the Prime Minister to a "Do laion" on Thursday, referring to the business of the session "Cabinet has been sitting most of to day, and part of Ua business was tbe consideration of certain Bills " Mr Massey added chat be did not think there would be any considerable amount of purely domestic legislation to come before House this session.
When the House is in session the Printing Office r'a invariably rushed in producing great numbers of Depart-, mental and other reports These will' also be ready earlier than uaual, the Department having been notified some nme ago to have tbeir papers ready for *n early session. One very desirable •eform is to be introduced in connection with these Departmental papers In more recent years these reports have been filled with expensive ilius r.rations Illustrating has been carried to absurd lengths, and the cost of the production of the reports has, in many cases, been out of all proportion to their value. Departments have apparntly vied with one another in the competition to produce showy picture books. There will not be so many pictures this year, and the reports will be smaller. Economy is only one of tbe reapons, however; the other is that the Government Printing Office, like all other printing houses in tbe Dominion, has no paper to waste just now.
