Mr. MARCIL:

Before the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Rogers) proceeds with the estimates for Ontario, as I was not present last evening, I would like to refer

to the item of $500 for repairs to wharf at Arise aux Gascons. There was a storm last spring which did considerable damage to this wharf. I put a question on the order paper and I think the minister replied that it would probably require an expenditure of $2,500 to put the wharf in good condition. I would like to know if this $500 is all that is to be expended this year or if an additional amount will be put in the supplementary estimates to make, up the $2,500 which, according to the engineer's statement, is required.

Mr. MURPHY:

I observe that that sum has been placed in the estimates for two succeeding years but there does not seem to have been any expenditure. Why is the work not being done?

Robert Rogers (Minister of Public Works)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. ROGERS:

The item is to provide for the. reconstruction of the superstructure of the pier for a length of 80 feet, and other repairs. It is regarded as a necessary work but it seems that arrangements have not been made to proceed with it. It is kept in the estimate because of the pressing necessity that appears to exist. It will be taken up at the earliest possible day.
