Mr. CARDIN:

Last year it was $14,530,320 in the main estimates, and in the supplementary estimates for the year 1935-36 the amount was $2,906,150. This gives a total of $17,436,470, outside the Public Works Construction Act. Under that act the amount was $7,892,243.

Mr. STEWART:

I take it that would

make the $24,000,000 provided last year in the main and supplementary estimates and the Public Works Construction Act.

Mr. CARDIN:

I must correct a statement I made a moment ago. The amount of about $7,000,000 is for expenditures under the Public Works Construction Act.

Mr. STEWART:

Could the minister tell

the committee in round figures the amount of the vote under the Supplementary Public Works Construction Act, 1936, that was allocated to the Department of Public Works? I am trying to get tihe total amount of expenditures through the Department of Public Works last year. In the main and supplementary estimates I take it that .the amount was about $17,000,000, and under the Supplementary Public Works Construction Act a certain amount was assigned to that department; I have forgotten how much.

That $26,000,000 does

not include the amount under the Public Works Construction Act, 1934?

Could the minister give

me the total for 1934? I do not want details. I should like the figure to include everything, main and supplementary estimates, and the Public Works Construction Act.
