Hugh Alexander Stewart (Minister of Public Works)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEWART (Leeds):

This vote is to provide for the construction of a building to accommodate the Department of Pensions and National Health in order that the various activities of that department may be correlated. In the interests of economy it is thought advisable to concentrate at the Alberta university where a unit was erected some years ago adjacent to the hospital.

Mr. BURY:

I congratulate the government upon this vote. I have some knowledge of the conditions in Edmonton and for some time additional premises have been required by the Department of Pensions and National Health. Part of the work of this department has been carried on in the post office building and I think it is a splendid thing to have this work carried on in a building close to the hospital.

Mr. SUTHERLAND:

At present the

activities of the Department of Pensions and National Health are carried on at different points in the city. Quite often a doctor or a patient has found it very inconvenient to go to two or three different places and by means of this building the services will be consolidated at one point.

I notice

$7,500 is being provided for the purchase of a building for postal purposes at Lacombe; is there not a post office at that point?

I notice that most of

these items are for the purchase of buildings and I suppose that that will relieve unemployment.
