Mr. PRICE.

I understand the Minister of Public Works has stated that these

houses will cost $87,000. I notice that a vote was asked last year for $55,000 and that we are now asked to vote another $57,000, making $112,000 for these 16 houses or $7,000 a piece. Is that correct?

Mr. PRICE.

And these subordinate instructors are to have houses built for them at a cost of $7,000 a piece. I call that disgraceful and ridiculous. I am surprised that the Minister of Public Works, after protesting this evening his desire to take the greatest care in expending the public money, should sanction an expenditure of this sort. I am a new member, this is my first session in parliament, and possibly I am more surprised than I will be later on that such utterly absurd and extravagant expenditure should be allowed by any minister of this government.

Kingston-Royal Military College-Barrack accommodation for stables, $15,600.
