Mr. PUGS LEY:

My hon. friend recognizes tire ntter absurdity of the provision, and amends it so that it will not apply to any man who enlists after the passage of this Act. After the Act passes, I suppose there will be four weeks before the election, and of course you can see the absurdity of allowing it to apply to relatives of persons who may join the naval forces after the election.

Mr. PUGS LEY:

When I was Minister of Public Works this work was very strongly urged by the hon. member for Huntingdon (Mr. Robb). It seemed by reason of the vast area which would be reclaimed that if would be a desirable vote. Why was this work not undertaken before? There was a vote last year of $15,000 for it, no part of which was spent.

Mr. PLUS LEY:

It is a very small

amount to vote for a monument, if there should be a monument at all. This item is very different from the amount of money that has been spent on erecting monuments all over the country to commemorate

Gnamplain. If a monument is to be erected to the heroes of 1812, I consider one thousand dollars a small amount.

Since this difficulty

occurred, has the Department of Agriculture taken steps to supervise each shipment, in order that none of our potatoes so affected shall be exported?

Mr. PER LEY.

I object to the principle laid down by the Minister of Public Works in this regard. If the Minister of Public Works would adopt some principle in expending the money under his control with regard to distributing it throughout the country in places most) needing it, according to their size and the revenues they contribute, irrespective of who represents these constituencies, there would be no objection. If the minister should go to the people after the election and say: I have administered my department fairly and honestly for the benefit of all the people of Canada, then he could take credit to himself for administering his department wisely. But, it is neither right nor just that the minister should go into a particular constituency and say: You are a community of 700 or 800 people, I have given you a building to which you were not entitled in fair play, and therefore you should vote for this government-That is not proper.
