Hon. Douglas Abbott (Minister of Finance):

Mr. Chairman, I shall have to take a moment to make the arithmetical calculation. The main estimates which were introduced, and which my hon. friend has before him, including the statutory items, total $2,217,678,181. The Newfoundland supplementaries, which I have not before me at the present time, were approximately $55 million, making a total for the current year of some $2,272 million. Perhaps my hon. friend would accept that round figure, on the understanding that I could give him the exact information later. It is a matter of record.
