Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. THOMPSON.

I regret that I cannot answer the question of my hon. friend regarding the amount of royalty and export tax which we have paid ; but, speaking without the book and from memory, I would say that up to the end of June a year ago we very nearly paid our way, except for the two charges mentioned-$750,-
000 for the Yukon field force and $400,000 for the Mackenzie & Mann settlement. We bought nearly $14,000,000 of goods and paid nearly $3,500,000 in duty.
