Mr. CALDWELL:

To go back to the
other matter I was discussing. I asked for the amount of superannuation paid during the year and it was given as $49,551.57, but the saving by absorbing the bonus was something less than $20,000 last year. Therefore we have paid out in this department nearly $30,000 more than we did last year. This illustrates the necessity of getting these estimates before a committee or, as an hon. member suggested, of printing and distributing the detailed information. If this Were done it would, I think, save a good deal of time in committee of the Whole. What I should like to know in this connection is how much was paid into the superannuation fund by those persons who were superannuated in this department.
