Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

That was the

proper thing to do. But I say it is not much use getting out these statements one year if we are not going to have them again, and I should not have thought it was necessary to go to the trouble of employing experts to get out a particular statement of that kind.

A statement every day in the Public Works department? Impossible.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

There is no

use getting down to childishness. It suits my hon. friend well. He can take to the bib as soon as he likes, but I am asking him what it will cost per annum in salaries to run the department.

He said a

moment ago that he could not tell. I would have thought, Mr. Chairman, that there should not have been much trouble getting this information.

Mr. GARLAND (Bow River):

We are in

a terrible hurry. May I suggest to the minister that, not only would the ex-Minister of Finance possibly be glad of the information, but other members would appreciate it. Do not supply it to him alone, but let us all have it. I want to get the total salaries.
