Mr. DURANLEAU:

As I have told the

committee, I have not the information at hand. I know the department has many engineers surveying the St. Lawrence during the whole navigation season. We have also on contractors' dredges, following the operations and making reports to the department, two or three inspectors, depending on the circumstances. If the dredge is working twenty-four hours a day, we have three inspectors; if it works only during the daytime, we have only two. But as to the amount expended for that purpose, I have not the information before me. I can say to my hon. friend that the supervision is complete and very satisfactory to the departs meat.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

It is not our policy,

because the department does not have power-full enough dredges to do certain works in the St. Lawrence. Our dredges are not all up to date and we have not powerful enough dredges for that purpose. As regards certain works where there is rock for instance, we have tried to do the job with out own dredges, but it was so costly to the department, five or six times more than it would cost under contract, that we had to abandon it. It is the scheme adopted by our predecessors that we are proceeding with.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

Offhand I would say the works were divided almost equally in the scheme of my hon. friend which we are proceeding with. But the department, owing to our equipment not being up to date, and the fact that we have not large funds available, is behind with its work. I would like to have this further amount in order to complete the cleaning up of the channel this season. This work is asked for by the province of Quebec and I think should be approved by all citizens of Canada. It is very important for Canada that large ocean shipping should be brought to the heart of Canada. That is why we want to keep our channel in proper shape.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

I have not the information at the present time, and I do not think it has anything to do with the vote in question. As a matter of fact this item is not for the purpose of building or purchasing dredges or scows; it is for the purpose of putting into commission dredges and scows owned by my department and which for reasons of economy have been laid up during these last years.
