First-hand accounts of a turning point in the province's history were released at Government House this morning.
The 1932-33 legislature debates provide insight into the state of the Dominion of Newfoundland at that time.
The 1932 session culminated in a serious riot due to accusations of corruption.
The second session of 1933 led to the decision to suspend Responsible government.
The debates have never been fully published and were reconstructed by James Hiller.
He used various sources, including The Evening Telegram and The Daily News.
A limited number of volumes are available at the Queen's Printer.
