Mr. LOVETT:

This boat plies between

Weymouth, Freeport, Westport, Tiverton, Little River, New Edinburgh, Plympton, and many other places where there is no rail connection. It is a very small subsidy. This boat is not making any money; the contractors just about broke even last year.

Mr. LOVETT:

The vote for $3,500 is in

my constituency; the vote for $5,000 is in the constituency of the member for Kings, N.S. (Mr. Robinson). I know that $3,500 is the subsidy for the service in my constituency, and it has been the same for a long time.
