Mr. CALDWELL:

I did not say it was in my riding, but in the province. I did not say it was not, either.

Mr. WARD:

The hon. member for Lunenburg made the statement some time ago that he would be in favour of abolishing the hatcheries entirely. I agree with that myself. Now we have another hon. member coming forward and upholding the hatcheries. Personally, I think we could very well expend more money in connection with the development of our fisheries, but I do not see very much sense in doing so if we do not get greater returns than we have in the past. I would like to see the Fisheries Department protect our fisheries a little more than they have in the past. I think the sum of $370,000 is a lot of money to spend on the development of hatcheries.

Mr. LAPOINTE:

The expenditure last year was $104,178.13. The increase is accounted for by the annual statutory increases and the appointment of two stenographers, one at Collingwood, Ont., and the other at Victoria, B.C., at $960 and $1,020 respectively.
