Speaking from my own experience on work of this kind I cannot agree with the hon. member. Once a structure is built, nominal repairs are needed from time to time, and they should be regarded as maintenance. We have a maintenance crew; we pay the foreman 75 cents and the other men 55 cents an hour and retain them the year round. We could follow my hon. friend's suggestion, but it would mean laying off the maintenance crew, because we could not carry a maintenance crew who did not do maintenance work. We could dismiss the men who do permanent work and have the work done by contract men hired as required. My hon. friend is hardly doing the men a service by insisting that on a $4,000 job in connection with a $1,000,000 jetty the work should be taken out of the hands of the maintenance crew and done by contract.
