Mr. QUINN:

The hon. member for Shel-burne-Yarmouth conveyed the impression, whether intentionally or not, I cannot say, that this work was being done at Sambro and only Conservatives who were brought in from outside were being employed. I may say further that a contract was awarded only last year at Camp Hill and the local Liberal member for Halifax was awarded it. There was no politics in that case.. I had complaints

Public Works Program

about that very same matter, but I have no jurisdiction over it nor could I do anything in regard to it. The contract was let by public tender and this man was the lowest tenderer. They were all Liberals who were employed on the job.

I do not know what the minister reported. I am reporting myself. The local member for West Halifax, who is a good friend of the hon. member for Shel-burne-Yarmouth, is also a good friend of mine. He reported the case to me and I replied, telling him that I had no authority over the matter; that the contractors could employ whomever they saw fit; that the government had no control.
