Is it not a fact that the

Mr. COOTE:

Can the minister do something to improve the ventilation in this chamber? The air in the chamber is very bad to-night, and it is the same practically every night. Coming in from the fresh air which one gets at the front door one at once realizes how far this chamber is from perfection. The atmosphere is certainly not what it should be, and the ventilation could unquestionably be improved. Will the minister have his engineers look into the matter, giving them definite instructions to. improve the ventilation?

Mr. ELLIOTT:

The matter is by no means new. Within the last week I have taken it up with some of the engineers. When the building was erected they thought they had the most modern system of ventilation obtainable, and perhaps they have. But I am told that in a building occupied, as this chamber is, during a great part of the day, it is almost impossible to devise a system which will properly ventilate the place and at the same time avoid draughts. On this side of the chamber at certain times in the day we can feel a draught at our backs when the ventilators are open. I have recently asked the engineers to investigate the matter to see whether something cannot be done.

I suppose you would like

to turn the draught over here.

Mr. ELLIOTT:

That might have some

advantages. Really, after all is said and done the system is perhaps about as good as we can get it.
