Hon. Mr. GRAHAM:

Mr. Speaker, my

hon. friend from Vancouver Centre will appreciate the difficulty of showing:

What amount of money was expended on the construction of Halifax ocean terminals previous to December 31st, 1921.

This would include all expenditure up to 1921. No doubt my hon. friend means the amount of money expended within a certain term of years.

Mr. STEVENS:

The question has reference, of course, to the large modern programme of improvement. You might say between 1911 and 1921, as far as that is concerned.

Mr. GRAHAM:

If my hon. friend will

allow me, that will not get him the information which I assume he wants. A plan of development of Halifax harbour was entered upon previous to 1911, and quite a large amount of money was expended on it. Does he desire that information as well, or only with respect to the new improvements? I want to furnish the information required, but I find myself embarrassed in regard to the period to be covered.

CHICAGO DRAINAGE CANAL


On the Orders of the Day: Right Hon. W7. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister): Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Church) asked a question respecting an order of the House that had been passed for the production of all papers regarding the diversion of water by the Chicago Drainage Commission, and an application for the construction of a power dam on the St. Lawrence "iver near the town of Morrisburg. In reply', the hon. Secretary of State (Mr. Copp) mentioned that the papers had been brought down two or three days ago and were on the Table. The answer was correct in respect to the second subject, the application for the construction of a power dam on the St. Lawrence river near Morrisburg; it was not correct as regards papers referring to the diversion of water by the Chicago Drainage Commission The delay in bringing down the latter papers is due to our not yet having received the acquiescence of the United States government. I do not think any exception will be taken. It is I understand, the wish of the American government that the papers should be brought down simultaneously at Washington and here. I expect to have the matter settled within the next week.


THE BUDGET


The House resumed from Wednesday, April 30, the debate on the motion of Hon. J. A. Robb (Acting Minister of Finance) that Mr. Speaker do now leave the chair for the House to go into Committee of Ways and Means, and the proposed amendment thereto of Mr. Woodsworth.
