Conservative (1867-1942)


This is a subject of such
vital importance to Canada that I would like the minister to understand my purpose is really to bring out exactly what this branch of the department is doing. I find there has been an increase in the proportion of expenditures to prosecutions and convictions by the department in connection with this subject, I find, moreover, there is an increase in travelling expenses, a decrease in revenue, an increase in salaries, a decrease in the number of convictions. The department to-day has a larger staff dealing with this very important subject when, before, according to the minister himself, with a lesser staff it was more efficient than it is now.

Topic:   S20,000.
