Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I am looking at 1921-1922, and it says $4,000. My hon. friends starting the jacking-up process as soon as they got the opportunity, but I was taking the vote before they had a chance of increasing it.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I am taking the vote just where we left it. The vote in 1921-1922 was $4,000 for this identical service between Sydney and Whycocomagh. There is an increase here of $9,000 over 1921-1922. Is there any difference in the service?
