Mr. STEWART (Lanark):
I am simply asking if that is the position.
Mr. STEWART (Lanark) :
Before the resolution carries, I think we ought to know whether or not the minister refuses to make a statement.
I do not know whether the hon. member from Lunenburg (Mr. Duff) is the authority as to what is proper.
Will the minister state how the $5,000,000 appropriation for this item stood at the end of the fiscal year?
Will the minister give the particulars of this item?
