Mr. VIEN:

In regard to the minister's explanation as to the decrease of $101,000, I understand that the decrease in the number of overseers will account for some portion of it, but I would like to know what portion of the decrease is accounted for by the decrease in the staff and what portion by the decrease in other expenses.

Mr. BAXiLANTYlNE : I do not agree with the cut in the estimates of $101,000 that has been made here, and I think I shall be forced a little later on to insert it in my supplementary estimates. I really do not think the cut should have been made at all, but economy is the watchword now, and the cut was rather forced on me.

Mr. McMAiS'TER: We were going to congratulate the minister on the decrease.

Topic:   SUPPLY.
