this long string of supplementary estimates. We cannot get details. There is nothing to show us what was voted last year in any case. These items are all thrown at us in a lump. It is utterly unfair to parliament.
sitting up too late. His constitution does not fit him to be up so late. The supplementaries in those days were never so protracted as these. What I am complaining of is that there is a long string, page after page as to one province, a whole batch by itself, and others almost equally long, of items that should have appeared in the main estimates if they were justifiable at all.
