William Pugsley (Minister of Public Works)

Liberal

Mr. PUGSLEY.

The return asked for the expenses of the outside service as well as the inside service, and as_ there are many hundreds of employees in the department in all sections of the country, the accountant began with the outside service, and reported that it would take several months to complete it. As the returns from the other departments only included the inside service, I thought he had better prepare the return for that service, and that will be completed in the course of a few days.,
