Hon. ROBERT ROGERS (Minister of Public Works):

I might say, in a general way, that there are no increases except the ordinary statutory increases, as far as I know, and a few7 promotions. The total amount asked this year is $543,000 as against $527,000, or a difference of $16,000 for the general increase incident to the expansion of the department made up entirely of the natural increase and statutory increases.

Mr. ROGERS:

The same answer applies to that as was given by my hon. friend the Minister of Agriculture. Heretofore, if we

sent out an inspector, an engineer or purchasing agent his expenses were chargeable to the particular work on which he was engaged, but for some reason or other on the recommendation of the Auditor General or Treasury Board, that has been changed and all travelling expenses are charged to a contingency account. That accounts for the increase over last year.
