PARLIAMENT AND POLITICIANS Journalist's Reminiscences III.— III.—SOME HANSARD INCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923

PARLIAMENT AND POLITICIANS Journalist's Reminiscences (By J. J. C.) Ill.- IlI.--SOME HANSARD INCIDENTS The Legislative Council is a much smaller chamber than the House of Assembly, and the acoustics are in finitely better. Yet, when a member turns his back to the Press gallery, and has not a particularly clear voice, his observations, especially when interjec tions fly from every quarter of the chamber, are difficult to hear. Then there is the halting, parentheti cal speaker-so parenthetical, indeed, that often there is no sequence, and it is left to the art of the trained reporter to unravel and smooth out the involved and tangled sentences. There is often a great deal of matter that is rambling and irrelevant, and discretion has to be used in dealing with hazy ideas in the reports of Parliamentary debates. Only once in the Legislative Council and in the House of Assembly has a member complained publicly of being misreported by Hansard. "It is a long and dusty road between the oppo...

City Inspector James reported to the council last night that since July 1t a total of 1447 canines, mostly of the male sex, had been registered. Compared with the figures for the corresponding period of last year, this sihows an in crease of over 140. The inspector esti mates that another 400 or 500 dogs will be registered within the next few weeks. He also reported that straying cattle seemed to be on the increase in the dis trict, but owing to a judgment given in the High Court it would be necessary for caution to be exercised before sum monses were issued. It would be neces sary to prove "that the owners suffered them to stray or, be at large." "But," added Mr. James, "we can successfully prevent cattle being depas tured in a public street when it is im possible for a person to control some times a dozen head, some of which walk o...
