Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the Minister of Labour (Mr. Gordon), I desire to lay upon the table orders in council numbers 439, 445, 449, 469, 509, 545, 736, 742, 766, 767 and 772, passed under the authority of the Unemployment and Farm Relief Act, 1931, and the Unemployment and Farm Relief Continuance Act, 1932.
I may say with respect to one of those orders in council dealing with Esquimalt, a question was asked the other day as to whether any new authorizations would be made. This is not a new authorization, but it contemplates $16,000 of an authorized expenditure of $191,000 being expended at this point rather than $31,000 as was originally intended. In other words, $15,000 will not be expended on repairing the dry dock and $16,000 will be spent on the dry dock grounds out of the original appropriation of $31,000, included in the $191,000. It is an entirely new item so far as items are concerned, but it does not increase the expenditure authorized.
