Mr. BARNARD:

' John Jardine, when he was elected in the Victoria 'Daily Times' of Wednesday, February 1, 1911, true?

' John Jardine, when he was elected in 1907, claimed that he lost work on account of his position as a Liberal representative. He appealed to the Public Works Department and was given work at the quarantine station. He was authorized to do work to a certain extent. He went on and did work and put in claims, I am speaking conservatively, to the extent of several thousands dollars in excess of the cost of the work he was authorized to do. He received that money without the knowledge of the Minister, and without the knowledge of the government.'

2. If the said statement is not correct, in what particulars is it untrue?

Sir WILFRID LAURIER:

1.& 2. The extract in question appeared in the Victoria * Times ' of February 1, as part of a speech made by Mr. John Oliver on the evening previous. As to the statements that Jardine claimed that he lost work on account of his position as a Liberal representative and that consequently, he appealed for work to be given him at the quarantine station, these possibly may be facts of local knowledge, but the department has not been advised in respect thereto. Mr. Jardine was authorized by the agent at Victoria, to do painting to a stated amount at Williams Head quarantine station and ignoring the instructions given him did work to an amount several thousand dollars in excess of what he was authorized to do.
