Pierre-Joseph-Arthur Cardin (Minister of Public Works)

Liberal

Mr. CARDIN:

I am afraid my right hon. friend exaggerates my ability to see things so far in advance. That was not the idea. The idea was to get rid of the staff as of March 31 because we did not want to continue in effect the Public Works Construction Acts of 1934 and 1935; we wanted to have all the items listed in the estimates. I assure my right hon. friend that any request or representation he might make will receive my most careful consideration.
