Liberal

Mr. HAMMELL:

No, for the simple reason that the locality has been served by a private wharf. But the business has increased so much of recent years, that a private wharf cannot accommodate the people.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I am protesting against

this long string of supplementary estimates. We cannot get details. There is nothing to show us what was voted last year in any case. These items are all thrown at us in a lump. It is utterly unfair to parliament.

Yes, it would have been unfair then, but it was not indulged in at that time.

Mr. POWER:

The hon. member must

not make that statement. On the night before prorogation in 1921 we passed estimates to the amount of $400,000,000.

Mr. POWER:

We passed all the supplementaries, and we had about ten additions to the supplementaries, to the best of my knowledge. We got a new sheet about every hour.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

The hon. gentleman is

sitting up too late. His constitution does not fit him to be up so late. The supplementaries in those days were never so protracted as these. What I am complaining of is that there is a long string, page after page as to one province, a whole batch by itself, and others almost equally long, of items that should have appeared in the main estimates if they were justifiable at all.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

What is the explanation of the $140,000, for Matane wharf in the supplementaries and nothing in the main estimates? That has been going on for years.
