I think that to say that the dock at Collingwood is an old dock repaired, is hardly to make a fair statement. The information we have is that the dock at Collingwood is practically an entirely new dock. The only excuse for saying anything about the old dock is that there was an old dock in former years. It was a small affair, and I understand all that remains of the old dock is a hole in the ground and that that hole is not big enough for the purposes of the new dock. I understand that there is nothing of the old dock there to-day so that properly speaking it is a new dock that is to be built at Collingwood.
'Mr. LANCASTER. Might I suggest that in the 27th line of the section you insert the word ' new ' before the word ' work ? ' If the hon. Minister of Finance means to pay this subsidy only on a new work instead of on a work partly old and partly new this will make it clearer.
