Mr. GARDINER:

This item is to provide for outstanding claims in connection with material aid and agricultural assistance in the dried-out areas during the years 1936-37 and 1937-38. These are amounts which were in dispute at the end of each of those seasons. The matter has been cleared up during the past year, and the necessary amounts to make these payments are now being voted. The first amount relates to a shipment of live stock, Saskatchewan, 1936-37, the balance due there is $1,581.26. Material aid in Saskatchewan for 1937-3S, expenditures under agreements in excess of amount made available at that time, $217,794.05. A shipment of live stock in Alberta, 1937-38-that is, the outward movement of live stock by large stock owners- approved for payment by treasury'' board February 14, 1939, $1,093.77. Direct relief, Alberta, 1937-38; expenditures incurred prior to April 1, 1938, but not submitted in time for payment, $4,587.35. That makes a total of $225,056.43.
