Robert James Manion (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

I have the contract here. Perhaps I should read the clause. It appears on page 5 and is as follows:
Ten per centum of the actual cost of tools, dies, jigs, and gauges purchased by the party of the first part or the party of the second part;
The party of the first part is the government, and the party of the second part is Major Hahn. He gets ten per cent of the actual full cost. Then the clause goes on to deal with the other things to which I referred.
