Mr. ROBB:

I will1 come to that in a few
moments. I said a moment ago that the land, generally speaking, had been fairly well bought. I will admit that there are, perhaps, some places where too much was paid for the land, but when you take the whole business throughout the various provinces the amount that was over-paid was very small. Resales are made from time to time owing to the fact that for one reason or another the soldiers find it necessary to give up their properties. I have a statement here showing that the gain in respect of these resales was $714,015.85.
