So far as the first question is concerned, in his preliminary statement the minister said that provision for the revolving fund, so far as stores are concerned, will be modelled closely on the Department of Transport Stores Act which was debated at length a year ago. Again the aim is to have a more uniform system both of accounting and purchasing, and the benefit of bulk purchases for all departments, instead of having each department make its own.
I must confess that at the present time the answer to the second question slips my memory. However, I shall have an answer on second reading of the bill.
Subtopic: PROVISION FOR CONSOLIDATION AND REVISION OF CERTAIN ACTS, AUDIT OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS, FINANCIAL CONTROL OF CROWN CORPORATIONS, ETC.
