Mr. MOTHERWELL:

When the matter of reductions was up before, the minister took the ground that they had been made possible this year and the year before by certain reorganization but that no impairment of service had occurred. I expressed some doubt that that could be done, and I should like to know if there has been any reorganization in connection with this item.

Mr. WEIR (Melfort):

There has been no reorganization in this case. There has been a reduction in office rentals, and travelling expenses have been less. There has been less demand for iced car service through the increased use of trucks.
