Mr. Chairman, lacking at this late hour the assistance of my staff I am afraid I am not able personally to give any details with regard to the work at Dorchester or the other prisons; but such work varies from prison to prison. In some places, for example, there is a great deal of printed forms and other printed material prepared for use in the penitentiaries and ir other government departments. In other prisons, or perhaps in the same prison, we produce large quantities of prison clothing and shoes. In other prisons-and I think this is true of Dorchester to which the hon. gentleman has just referred-farming operations are carried out on a considerable scale. The total production for all the penitentiaries across
Canada runs into substantial sums of money under all these heads, and is quite an important source of revenue on the other side of the ledger to the moneys which we are obliged to expend to maintain the prisons.
