Mr. CAMPBELL:

A few minutes ago I asked the minister as to the number of locomotives that were going to be bought under this bill, and he replied, about twenty. I point out that this probably means an expenditure of only one and a: quarter to one and a half millions out of this total of $15,000,000. It is further shown that only about $4,000,000 will be spent in repairs; therefore about $10,000,000 will go to the car manufacturers Which seems too large a proportion. I take it that the railway companies feel that twenty locomotives are all they need, so that I am not going to make any special plea for any locomotive manufacturing company. But I want to add a few words, not in defence of any private corn-pay, but to show that some of the utterances of some of my friends to the left on this side are a little severe as to where this money would go. I feel that any money spent under this bill would benefit the unemployed and the farmers and business men surrounding any city in Which any of these factories are located. I have asked several manufacturing concerns in Kingston for their payroll and their production during the years since 1920, and I have before me a table made up by myself from the data received from the Canadian Locomotive Works. I want to be brief, because the hour is getting late, but the table shows that on the average the company have employed 501 men yearly since 1920 and have paid these men $575,833.34 annually, or about $1,150 per man. They have built 238 locomotives, costing $15,353,000, or an average of 21-6 per year. The statement was made tonight that of the money spent for locomotives two-thirds would go in material and one-third in labour. It will be noted that in this case of $15,000,000 spent on locomotives over $7,000,000 went in wages. I believe in this plant wages are fairly high; I can assure my hon. friends to the left that if the Canadian Locomotive Works in Kingston is given some business probably the wages paid will be a little higher than those in some other shops.

Mr. MaoINNIS: Are the men organized?

Mr. CAMPBELL:

I think they are all union men. I think the hon. member for Kingston City will bear out the statements I have made.

Mr. MadNNIS: That accounts for the higher wages.
