Mr. BENNETT:

Mr. Speaker, if this is to include buildings that were erected for the convenience of the permanent force and the mounted police I think it should say so. So far as expenditures for military and police purposes under the Public Works Construction Act are concerned, they are covered entirely by the estimates. I think there is a clear distinction. If the motion is to include these buildings it should say so.

Motion agreed to.


STE. ANNE DE BEAUPRE, QUE., PUBLIC BUILDING


On the motion of Mr. CASGRAIN: For a copy of all papers, correspondence, telegrams, and other documents, in the possession of the Department of Public Works, with reference to the construction of a public building at Ste. Anne de Beaupre, in the county of Montmorency, to the extent of $25,000 as mentioned in the estimates for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1936.

Mr. BENNETT:

Mr. Speaker, with reference to this motion and the following ones, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, under the rulings of successive Speakers, they are nob properly upon the paper. It has not been customary to ask for nor to supply information with respect to the current year's operations or as to the extent to which action may be taken. This motion, for instance, refers to the construction of a public building to the extent of $25,000, as mentioned in the estimates for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1936. We discussed this question some time ago in this house and we concluded so far as all governments are concerned that the circumstances under which the appropriations are made in the estimates should not be discussed in the house through the production of papers between the minister and his engineers and other people who make reports, because it is not possible to give effect to every report that is made by every engineer in every part of the country. Something may seem to be important and yet it may not be possible to supply the funds. I therefore suggest that these motions be reconstructed in order that they may be dealt with in the usual manner.

Mr. POULIOT:

May I submit, on a point of order, Mr. Speaker, and as a question of privilege, that the Prime Minister might wait until the hon. member for Charlevoix-Mont-morency (Mr. Casgrain) is back in the house to argue the matter with him.
