printed books, but it is in the statement which the right hon. leader of the Opposition found in the return and which was admitted in the discussion a few days ago. The figures which I have given make a total indebtedness of $94,279,637.56.
I am speaking of the amount of money which this company requires in order to complete the railway, and I am including in that the liabilities which exist to-day and the amount of money which they state they require, after giving credit for all the assets set out on page 9 of the blue-book. I add to that $20,703,000, the amount which is owing. to the banks, and I make a total of $94,279,637. It is
stated that $24,000,000 are pledged to the company as security for this $21,000,000. Supposing these securities have a par value; there would be to the credit of the company, coming from the banks, $3,396,135.
It is not in the books. If there is a statement tabled, I have no doubt that the hon. member for Calgary and the hon. member for Kingston had it, in view of their speeches of yesterday. At any rate, it was rather difficult for hon. gentlemen on this side of the House to get it.
My hon. friend has a right to say nothing which I do not permit him to say during the course of my speech; he may as well understand that. I asked my hon. friend what he gives as the value of the securities now pledged to the banks for the loan of $20,000,000?
