Mr. WILTON:

May I suggest that I am only using this as an illustration, pointing out that $376,000 is being spent in a city half the size of Hamilton. If I am not in order, all right, but if I am, I should like to continue for just a few moments.

Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver):

I am quite sympathetic with the hon. member for Hamilton West in what he is advocating. I am well aware of the claims of Hamilton with reference to the rifle range, and I intend as soon as possible to comply with his desire in that regard.

What is the purpose of

the amendment?

Ian Alistair Mackenzie (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver):

The idea is that the amount for architects' fees is not all required at Calgary; it is required for general purposes all over Canada. A specific amount of a little over five thousand dollars is required in respect of Calgary, but this item includes additional amounts and is for general purposes in connection with the department's special supplementary estimates.
