-having regard to what happened last year when the estimates of the minister were before the committee.
In all fairness I say the minister might very properly allow the hon. member to continue. This is a matter of some importance, the discussion of which could not properly be had under any other item in the estimates. The minister will be the first to agree that wide latitude is given in the discussion on the administration item. I submit this is not one of those detailed matters which would normally fall within any of the actual items.
