Mr. BOTVIN:

My hon. friend is wrong.

There is no criticism of the estimate, nor of the official who prepared it.

Mr. BOTVIN:

It is all very well for the leader of the government to rise in his place and with a gesture to the gallery say, "Gentlemen, you will certainly piass these estimates, because they are yours." I have not had time to examine the supptementanies, but I take the hon. member's word that the same condition exists in connection with them. So far as the main estimates are concerned, there is no doubt we take full responsibility for their preparation, and we hope the country will give us credit for the estimates as they are presented to the House. I ask my hon. friend now and the other hon. members of the newly formed government sitting around him, whether or not they will undertake to spend the money that we are voting to them to-night? That is a question to which the people of Canada are entitled to have an affirmative or negative reply. Therefore I think before we proceed further in rushing these estimates through at the rate of millions of dollars per hour we should have some assurance that the government is going to use every reasonable effort to expend the money voted according to the wishes of this House. Without that assurance I do not think we should continue at this headlong pace passing estimates which may never be expended.
