1. Was the following resolution passed by the Public Accounts Committee in May, 1910, viz:

" Moved by Mr. Sharpe, seconded by Mr. Carvell, that whereas the expense to the Government during the last year for lighting the Woods and Canadian buildings amounted to $9,465.91, paid to the Imperial Realty Company, which company is not an electrical lighting company; and whereas the city of Ottawa has a standard schedule of prices whereby the lighting would cost only $5,040 or less, thereby effecting an annual saving to the country of $4,425.91 or more; therefore this committee desires to urge upon the Minister of Public Works and the Government the desirability of cancelling the present arrangement and recovering the excess unjustly paid to the Imperial Realty Company, and giving the city of Ottawa or some other company the contract at lower rates; and that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Minister of Public Works?

2. If so, did the then Government take any steps to recover the moneys referred to as unjustly paid to the Imperial Realty Company?
