Mr. MARCIL:

Has the resident engineer of Bonaventure county reported in favour of repairs being made to certain of the wharfs down there-I refer particularly to Bonaventure, Gascon, St. Godfroy, Cap-lan and Paspebiac? Is provision made for the completion of Ithe beach protection work fat Carleton and Maria? Is work to be carried on thp wharf of Robin, Jones & Whitman at Paspebiac? Bonaventure county does does not appear in the Main or the Supplementary Estimates. I wanted to know whether the engineer had omitted to make any report, or whether the department had decided not to make any expenditures. I ask this, because a lot of these repairs are necessary.

Mt. ROGERS:

In general terms, all repairs asked for by the engineers appear in

the Estimates; but the deputy will look the matter up, and if we have any recommendations from the engineer in the department, we shall be glad to send a copy to my hon. friend. The Paspebiac wharf has not yet been transferred to the department.

Mr. MAECIL:

The minister's explanation last year was that it was intended to spend three or four thousand dollars on this wharf, the wharf to remain the property of the private owners, but to be available for the use of the public. Is no work to be done until the wharf is transferred to the Department?

Mr. MAECIL:

The highways at Carleton and Maria have been washed away by the heavy tides and storms. Is that beach protection work to be continued this year?

Mr. EOGEES:

There is a difference of opinion as to whether the work that has been carried on in the past at Carleton and Maria should be done by 3 p.m. this department or by the municipal authorities. Of course, at present, when we can get any excuse to delay expenditure we are doing so, and that may 'be the explanation in this ease.
