Mr. REID (Mackenzie) :

The minister has given the committee a great array of figures as to the cost of collecting customs revenue and inland revenue, but he did not say how he arrived at the percentage of cost. Has he taken into consideration, for example, rentals, depreciation of buildings, office furniture, and so on? In other words, has he computed his costs as they would be computed in the annual statement of a commercial company at the end of the year?

I notice also that the cost of collecting the inland revenue was reduced from 6.3 in one year to 3.21 the next, and to 1.68 in the following year. How does the minister

account for this reduction? If the cost keeps on coming down, he will soon be able to collect his inland revenue without any expenditure at all.

Hon. Mr. REID:

Those are the only ones my deputy has marked as being due at that time by the Grand Trunk Railway. The other items would be since then.

Hon. Mr. REID:

Anything I know, I am prepared to tell the committee, and the insinuation was a mean one for the hon. member to make. I am prepared to give any and every answer I can, no matter what the hon. member states. I want to repeat again: Any items in the Estimates that were due or owing when this Government took over the Grand Trunk, will be considered by the arbitrators in making their award. Any item of expenditure since that time, will, of course, not be considered by the arbitrators.
