The house in committee of supply, Sir Eugene Fiset in the chair.
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): Mr. Chairman, the object of
going into supply to-day is to enable the committee to deal with the supplementary estimates for the last fiscal year which have not yet passed the house. They were tabled quite a few weeks ago. It is necessary to deal with them now in order that a supply bill may be passed in connection therewith before May 15, to enable the necessary payments to be made on account of the last fiscal year.
