Mr. HUMPHREY:

Mr. Speaker, at the

moment I have not any particular information. I am quite well aware that these bounties were

The Budget-Mr. Humphrey

granted by the previous government, and I am also well aware that they are not in existence to-day, that as soon as the present company and others were in a position to get along without the bounties they automatically ceased.

Mr. HUMPHREY:

I do not think there

is any toad in the United States that can be compared with the roads on this side per ton mile haulage. I think the roads on this side compare favourably with every road in the United States for haulage per ton mile.

Mr. HUMPHREY:

I do not wish to be misunderstood by my hon. friend. I did not imply that we should not discuss the resolution at all, I merely said that we should not lay down conditions respecting the appointment of the. trustees and the administration of the fund.

Mr. HUMPHREY:

Mr. Chairman, in my opinion no condition should be laid down by this House in regard to the appointment of trustees. I would leave it in such a way that any representations would be considered by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council. As to the suggestion bjr the hon. member for Burrard (Mr. Clark) that military units now in existence should have representation, I am not in agreement with him. There may be military unite in Vancouver, but to-day throughout the interior of British Columbia there are practically none, and I am convinced that to lay down the condition that such military units should have representation would create dissatisfaction. I am sure every one in this House, and more especially the Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment, wishes to evolve a measure that will prove as near satisfactory to the returned men and to the country as is possible, but I do not think we are likely to reach this desirable

result- if we attempt to lay down conditions regarding the appointment of trustees. Certainly I cannot subscribe to such a course and I cannot agree that military units now in existence should be given representation.
