Hon. W. C. KENNEDY (Minister of Railways and Canals) :

The information I have is this: In the civil government estimates for 1921-22 the department provided for certain clerks who were eligible under "blanketing in" anticipating that such "blanketing in" would be accomplished and effective from April 1, 1921. As such was not the case these salaries had to be taken care of from the contingencies vote, as follows:

A. J. McDermid, Clerk-Stenographer 5 900

L. Walters, Typist 600

I. McBursey, Clerk-Stenographer 1,080

The travelling expenses of the officials of the department were about $3,800 higher than estimated, the increase being due, principally, to the large amount of work relative to the Canada Highways Act 3,800

Hon. Mr. KENNEDY:

No project covering the road in question has been filed with the Federal Highways Commission, nor has any agreement respecting it been entered into by the province of Ontario under the Canada Highways Act. Consequently, the Department of Railways and Canals has no information.
