Mr. ELLIOTT (Middlesex):

If the hon. member were told that-and I do not question it for a moment-it illustrates the danger of making prophecies far in advance in connection with matters of this kind. I am not in a position either to confirm or to deny the report. A number of questions of policy have to be settled before an announcement can be made as to the actual time of opening.

Mr. GREEN:

Is any portion of this vote to be spent on the trans-Canada air mail service?

Mr. ELLIOTT (Middlesex):

Yes, 8390,500. The total amount is $705,000. For 1936-37 the amount was $314,500, and in the present estimates it is increased by $390,500.

Mr. ELLIOTT (Middlesex):

I was asked that information by the hon. member for Yale, and I have in my hand a list of all the contracts. Unless the hon. member or any

hon. members of the committee are interested in a particular route, perhaps the best way would be to put it on Hansard, as I did last year.

It will be helpful if the minister would do as he suggested, put the whole list on Hansard.

Mr. ELLIOTT (Middlesex):

Does the hon. member wish merely to have it placed on Hansard, or does he wish it read?

Mr. STIRLING:

Just put it on Hansard, as far as I am concerned.

Mr. ELLIOTT (Middlesex):

I believe the purpose would be served if we do as we did last year, namely, put the whole list on Hansard. The hon. member will then be able to see it and if there are any questions to be asked concerning it they may be asked on the supplementary estimates or on these estimates, if we do not finish to-night. The information is as follows:
