Mr. EULER:

The item refers to grants

to aeroplane clubs. I was under the impression that the department loaned certain aeroplanes to these private aeroplane clubs. Does this imply that cash grants are given, as well, and, if so, how much; and how many aeroplanes are now on loan, if we may so describe it, to these private clubs?

Mr. STIRLING:

The agreement arrived

at between the department and the aeroplane clubs has been reviewed, and the aeroplanes granted to the existing clubs were granted at the same time. They have had little done to the planes, and they are almost on their last legs.

Mr. STIRLING:

Yes, there is a cash grant as well as the undertaking to supply a machine for the use of the club, provided the club supplies one, making a total of two machines. I shall send the hon. member the

statement which has been prepared in this connection. I had it in my other book of estimates, but it is not before me now.

Mt. BRADETTE:

Prior to 1931 there was considerable activity in connection with repair work at Lemieux island. Some of the men who worked there during the winter of 1930-31 were fired, on a plea of economy, and have been out of work. A few moments ago I learned from the minister that much of the repair work is now being done by private firms. Could he explain why the men were fired-I think that is the word for it- and were not taken back to work when as a matter of fact the government has found it possible to spend thousands of dollars on repairs done by private firms in Montreal and Toronto?

Mr. STIRLING:

The smaller repairs which can be done by our own mechanics are so done. However if and when reconditioning is necessary, or if as the result of an accident considerable repairs are necessitated which cannot be done by our own mechanics the work is handed out to certain companies who specialize in repairs to these machines.

While the town of Forest is

not in my constituency may I say that I have had numerous communications from the

Supply-Public Works-Buildings

citizens of that town with respect to an item for a building of a post office which they understood would appear in the supplementary estimates. I know there is provision for an expenditure in the town of Watford, and I should like to know why provision is not made for an expenditure in Forest?

Hon. H. A. STEWART (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Chairman, I recall the request

having been made for this building, but it is in the same position as many others. We have had requests for similar buildings from all parts of Canada and they have been so numerous that we have been unable to meet them all. We have made the selection which under the circumstances we believed best. That is the reason this one has been left out.
