Mr. Mulch:

If I might venture to reply, the difference between the liability total, which is the annual liability based on the awards, and the annual expenditure is, in this particular case, partially due to the fact that there was a backlog of increased rates during the period under discussion. In addition, there are liabilities which cannot be estimated. These recipients are entitled to hospitalization .and treatment, and in the course of a year the extent to which that is more than the expectation may substantially increase the Cost. It has been pointed out also that this is the liability as of that date, and in some instances some of those awards may be less than 30 days or 60 days old. By the time you have completed your year the expenditures will be exceeded by the difference of the liability as of that moment and the conclusion of the year.

Mr. Mutch:

The answer is yes. While I am answering that, may I refer also to a remark made by the hon. member a moment ago. As he knows, an investigation was made of the septic tank fields in St. Vital and Charles-wood and in only one instance, that one in Charleswood, was it discovered that a field was faulty in construction and had not been laid in accordance with the specifications. That field was relaid. Although there was some doubt in the minds of the inspectors as to whether this field had been damaged inadvertently after being laid, it was repaired.

Mr. Mulch:

I assume the hon. member means the number of recipients of war veterans allowance rather than pensions?
