before me, but I observe that the government of which my hon. friend (Mr. Edwards) was a supporter and candidate issued a governor general's warrant in this connection for 818,142. So there could not be much wrong with tire item.
The point I was making was simply that the item had not been brought up by the Chairman. My hon. friend the Minister of Finance does not give me credit when I am trying to help him. I want to see the item carried.
The item is subdivided into two amounts. It is true I did not read the two parts of the item. The committee carried the item for 150,000. Shall the item for 860,000, for printing, advertising, inspection, express, etc., carry?
the occupant of the office of Solicitor General, we had a very excellent messenger, but he was not described as a confidential messenger. I think he is still there, and my recollection is that in that office we did not have a very great deal for a messenger to do. May I ask my hon. friend the Solicitor General whether he is asking for an additional messenger, described here as a confidential messenger, or is there to be only one messenger in connection with that office?
