Mr. BUREAU:

I can compare those figures with those of any of the biggest ports, Vancouver, for instance, or Montreal. The corresponding figures for Montreal and Vancouver are:
Supply-Customs

Montreal
Customs Customs Excise Excise Year Entries Revenue Entries Revenue
1922- 1923 . . 233,731 $32,307,801 43 58,326 $34,456,503 991923- 1924 . . 271,207 $30,900,360 76 59,440 $60,176,645 17
Vancouver

My hon. friend can find these figures, I think, in the Auditor General's report. Toronto would .average, I am told iby the officers who are more acquainted with the details, about 20 per cent of the total.
