Robert Laird Borden (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

Might I suggest to the minister that, of course, technically, it is all one item. No. 197-and, by Hie way, there seems to be a great divergence of practice in regard to the way in which items are numbered. In some departments we would find every one of these items with a distinct number, and I would think that the minister would get things cleared up more satisfactorily if he would put them in that way. As the whole item must stand, I would suggest to the minister that we might run through those that involve no discussion and leave about three that will involve discussion.
