May I ask the hon. Minister of Marine whether the sum of $1,600,000 mentioned by the right hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) as the amount required this year by the Quebec Harbour Commission, is a balance of the $10,000,000 appropriated by parliament or whether it is the vote which the department intends to ask parliament in this respect?

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

That will run to very

substantial expense. Last year it will be recalled that we did print them, and they were printed the year before. This will mean the printing of the three tables, and to print in large numbers the original tariff on all the items as it stood before the Dunning budget, and as it was affected by the changes of 1930 and of this year will involve a considerable expense.

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

No, it is not desired to have the tariff printed as it was before the Dunning budget, but rather as it stood after the Dunning budget had been introduced. As far as the expense is concerned, I believe that in the end the expense will be more than saved by the opportunities of quick comparison which will thereby be afforded.
