Mr. POSTER@

Very well, I will put my question in another way. Will the minister give us the information as to how much his department has paid the Receiver General in respect of the services rendered to his department by such roads as were bonused under the .condition that they should do a certain amount of carrying for the country ?

Mr. SPROULE.

There has been a good deal of talking for some years past as to whether it would not be wise to put the telegraph and telephone systems of the country under the Post Office Department, and the hon. minister informed us last year that that question was engaging his attention. I would like to inquire if he has reached any conclusion regarding it, or has he been able to collect sufficient data. to enable him to judge whether it would be a proper thing to do or not ?

Sir WILLIAM MULOCK.

That is a very interesting and large question. I am afraid I am not able to supplement what I stated last session. It is now 6 o'clock, and I do not think it is desired to meet to-night. If it is not, perhaps my hon. friend will allow the discussion to terminate now. I move that the Committee rise and report progress.
