Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

I will give my hon.
friend the construction items. Since that $375,000 was spent, the air board has spent $37,000 on construction.-I will give my hon.

Supply-National Dejence
friend the round figures-then the air force spent $60,000 and the Canadian corr3 of signallers spent $14,000. The air ooard has spent on maintenance $110,000, the air force $175,000 and the corps of signallers, $20,000. The actual capital expenditure since that time has therefore been $111,000, bemuse my hon. friend will understand that the items for maintenance do not enter into the calculation because they are annual expenditures which would be required in any event.
