Jacques Bureau (Minister of Customs and Excise)

Liberal

Mr. BUREAU:

Mr. Ide's name was in the estimates as submitted to be printed, but through some error it was omitted. Reference to page 83 will show that the amount is set out in the twelfth line, "superintendent, staff $4,200." It does not increase the estimate at all. I have taken this procedure because last year the same thing happened when the estimates of the Post Office Department were before the committee. The name of Mr. Anderson had been omitted, and a similar motion was made to rectify the mistake, I was the mover of the motion when my friend the present Minister of Railways (Mr. Graham) was acting for the Postmaster General.
