My secretary has just
sent me a memorandum covering the complete payments by the department for office rental in Fort William. The rentals are as follows:
Office Rentals at Fort William
Commissioners and secretaries' rooms $
The statisticians' rooms
The licensing and bonding rooms.. .. The weighing branch -. . * The inspection and registration
General manager of elevators
275 75 161 59 83 00 249 34
823 55 141 67
Total $1,735 90
A total of $20,830.80 for the year.
Therefore I submit that with a supervision branch going into Fort William, it is very likely that the full amount of space will still be required and probably more.
