Material aid is not being distributed in the province of New Brunswick and in lieu of a grant-in-aid for material aid purposes a special grant-in-aid agreement has been entered into with that province providing for a dominion contribution of $225,000 towards expenditures incurred by the province during the fiscal year 1938-39 in carrying on or assisting in carrying on certain projects and works, or 50 per cent of said expenditures whichever is the lesser.
