Mr. CARDIN:

The officer of the department made the following report on January 22, 1937:

I visited Rock Island and examined the Bouchard property required by the customs to handle the vehicular traffic. This property, owned by Mr. Bouchard, consists of a lot, number eighty, situate on Main street at the junction of the bridge approach. It has a frontage of eighty-three feet on Main street by a depth of ninety-four feet on the approach to the bridge, and has, according to the official book of reference of the village, an area of 9,700 feet. On the land as it stands there is a three-storey building, sixty-one feet by fifty-seven feet. There are three shops on the first floor and four apartments on the second. The third storey is not finished.

Mr. COCHRANE:

I should like to know why some consideration is not being given to my constituency? I do not want to be unfair,

but I submit that something should be done there.

Hugh Alexander Stewart

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEWART:

This is a revote, which

indicates that the work has been undertaken. There has been a prior vote. As we have gone through these estimates what strikes one is the large number of revotes. What is the total amount expended last year out of the estimates? It seems to me there must be a very large discrepancy or margin between the votes of last year and the amount actually expended, because we have so many of these revotes. We have the figures of the total estimates, main, supplementary and others for each year; but I should like to know, if it is not too much trouble, the total amount expended out of the estimates last year to the end of the fiscal year?
