Mr. OHEVRIER:

Mr. Chairman, I do not intend to delay the committee at this late stage, but I am very sorry to see that the administration has not seen fit to include in

Supply-Miscellaneous

the supplementary estimates something in the way of relief for those who have been let out from the Department of the Interior. I thought at one time that this matter was being favourably considered, especially the suggestion that five years should be added to the length of service of those who had not reached thirty-five years of service. To have done this would have served a very useful purpose. I had other observations to make on this item, but I will defer them until next session.

The Prime Minister is very much concerned, as it is his duty to be, about unemployment, and I hope that he will find some way of using some of the money which has been appropriated to-day in an endeavour to relieve the situation in Ottawa. Six hundred employees have been let out, and when their families are considered the total number affected would amount to probably 2,500. This has caused a tremendous disturbance of ecenomic conditions in this city, as a large number of merchants, dealers and others have thereby also been affected. These employees have been let out without notice and I trust the administration will give their case favourable consideration.
