Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

Oh yes. Allow me to refer to the answer I made to a question by the hon. member for Toronto Northwest bearing on the point. It will be found in Hansard at page 2722. This is the concluding paragraph of the answer:
The item under advertising in Canadian National accounts which the hon. gentleman refers to as having increased by $175,162 during 1927. covers advertising of all kinds throughout Canada and the United States. During 1927 the management expended on advertising in newspapers, $303,809.25. In addition thereto there was issued transportation in lieu of cash for advertising space in newspapers in Canada only $197,225.39.
That is to say, the railway expended in cash not quite twice as much as it paid for advertising by the issuance of transportation. That answers my hon. friend's question.
