Mr. BANCROFT:

Has any arrangement

been made for providing superannuation for lighthouse keepers when they retire from the service? I understand from experience I had with the department in the past, that no superannuation is provided for them because they are classed as part-time employees. This works quite a hardship upon some of the men when they become old in the service. Some provision should be made in regard to superannuation.

That is what I understood; it will be done this year out of the general vote?

Mr. BANCROFT:

What progress is being

made with respect to providing aids to navigation required in lake Winnipeg? During the summer of 1927 I was asked to meet a number of captains and mates who operate ships there. About forty of them were in attendance and .they outlined a number of aids that were needed in the shape of lighthouses and buoys. I took the matter up with the minister at the time, and last summer he was good enough to send an inspector there to report on the situation. I understand the inspector was of opinion that certain lighthouses and buoys were needed. Is any provision being made for these aids?

Mr. BANCROFT:

I wish to support the

suggestion made by the hon. member (Mr. Spencer). In the institution at Stony Mountain, in the constituency I have the honour to represent, they do exceptionally good work. They make the uniforms worn by the guards, the wardens and other officials of the penitentiaries, and those uniforms are equal in fit and quality to those used by the militia. I feel sure that there would be no trouble at all in getting uniforms of proper fit and style made in our penitentiaries, and I hope the minister will investigate this question and see if something cannot be done along the lines suggested.
