Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).
My hon. friend from St. Mary's Division (Mr. Tarte) has always a valuable suggestion to offer. Why not throw in the Department of Public Works ? This would give my hon. friend the Minister of Customs a somewhat wider scope for the splendid energies he is wont to exhibit on all occasions. I offer this suggestion particularly for the approval of the Minister of Trade and Commerce, who no doubt will take this occasion to urge on his leader and colleagues the advisability of the change. If seven ministers were sufficient for Canada six or seven years ago. they ought to be now, just as they are in the United States.
