Mr. BURRELL:

il understand that a good many such forms are printed. However, I will make a note of what my hon. friend says.

Before the item is carried I would like to put on record-because it may be of interest to members-a statement of the collections, and expenditures and percentage of the cost of collection because in a sense perhaps-altogether dependent on how one looks at these matters-it is a pretty gratifying statement. We have amalgamated the Departments of Inland Revenue and Customs and I am glad to say that we are operating one department with a somewhat less number of officers than we had before, have collected in both departments the greatest amount of revenue on record, and have reduced the cost of collection to the lowest point since 1894. The customs collections for last year were $187,631,000, the expenditure was $4,669,000 and the cost of collection was 2.48 which is the lowest point in the whole series of years since 1894 when we began at 5.3. In the Inland Revenue Department the collections were $58,000,000 and the cost of collection 2.79. [DOT]
