In connection with the above figures, inspection fees are only collected on commercial entries of animals, while those imported as pure-breds or settlers' effects receive free inspection and test, if required. The location of Pinhorn is such that commerical entries of live stock may be considered negligible.

The veterinary inspector stationed at that point does not, of course, confine his duties to the inspection or test of animals entering Canada, but is used in connection with mange work or such other work as may be required, which has been of very considerable magnitude in some of the years covered by the above figures.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS -RETIRING GRATUITIES


On the Orders of the Day:


PRO

William John Ward

Progressive

Mr. W. J. WARD (Dauphin):

Mr. Speaker, in the session of 1923 I brought up the question of certain gratuities given to retiring officials of the Grand Trunk railway. As will be seen by reference to page 1667, volume 2, of Hansard of that year, the question was asked as to whether or not certain officials would be called upon to return the amount awarded them. The Minister of Railways (Mr. Graham) announced, and his statement will be found at page 1668 of the same volume, that the officials in question were going to refund the gratuities they had received. I should like to know whether the officials in question have made such refund, and if so when?
