Mr. CASTLEDEN:

There seems to be a change here. The total amount in the main estimates was $13,000,000, and now we have supplementaries for $10,000,000. For 1945-46 it was $5,000,000; in the main estimates it is increased to $13,000,000-one would imagine the department would have a fairly good idea of its requirements-and then there is a request for $10,000,000 in the supplementaries. What is the reason for this eighty per cent increase?
