Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, may I inquire of the Minister of Finance (Mr. Dunning) when the supplementary estimates for the year ending March 31, 1937, will be laid on the table?

Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): Mr. Speaker, I cannot answer definitely. Of course the departments concerned are attempting to get their figures

together in sufficient time before the end of the fiscal year to cover everything. I expect to get along with the work as fast as possible, and will bring down the estimates as soon as I can.
