Mr. MACDONALD (Brantford):

I do not like to take exception to the Speaker's ruling, but I have acceded to the suggestion of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe) to make the motion read that the committee be asked merely to consider the matter. I agree entirely with the statement made by the Minister of Finance as to taking moneys out of the consolidated revenue fund. The motion, however, does not ask for a repayment of moneys already paid; but it asks that the committee consider whether or not the company should be required to pay the fees again this year.

Mr. SPEAKER:

I considered the point

raised by the Minister of Finance, and I was of opinion that the motion was out of order and could not be entertained, and so I called "dropped."

TORONTO POST OFFICE BUILDING

REPORTED DECISION NOT TO COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION THIS TEAR


On the orders of the day:


CON

Harry Gladstone Clarke

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. H. G. CLARKE (Rosedale):

I should like to ask the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Cardin) whether his department intends letting contracts for the extension of the post office in Toronto in the near future. I have made similar inquiries on previous occasions but did not receive the answer I should have liked to receive. I ask, therefore, whether there is any possibility of contracts being let for this extension, which is of great importance to Toronto.

Hon. P. J. A. CARDIN (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, some time ago a proposal for the extension of the postal terminal in Toronto was considered, with other proposals of a similar character from other parts of the country. Several public buildings of great importance have been under discussion, and it has been decided after consideration that for the moment at least the extension my hon. friend speaks of be not proceeded with but be given further consideration. We are at present giving the matter further consideration.
