Mr. VENIOT:

That was approved November 26, and every cent of the money was spent during the summer time and a lot of it during the election; and that money spent in the county of St. John during that by-election was transferred to the projects submitted to the federal government and approved November 26, 1931. I am sorry to say that the hon. gentleman does not know what he is talking about. I have an absolute statement here from the department. I will go further. As regards this expenditure in St. John as well as the expenditure in the county of Gloucester during these by-elections, I challenge the Minister of Labour to bring down the pay sheets, to bring down the detailed accounts showing the dates on which the money was spent. Then this house will know who is telling the truth and who is not.

Mr. Speaker, I do not wish to take up any more of the time of the house just now, because it is almost eleven o'clock. I have more to say, but if I entered now upon other arguments which I wish to advance, and which I shall advance on some other occasion, there would not be time for me to finish. I see by the clock that it is now five minutes to eleven and therefore I will say no more at the moment.
