CON

Hugh Alexander Stewart (Minister of Public Works)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEWART (Leeds):

The only reason is that the appropriation will not permit. When the construction of the breastworks or breakwater referred to by my hon. friend was undertaken, it was realized that to make the work effective, dredging would have to follow. The breastworks had to be constructed first. The importance of the work to the fishermen is fully realized and I can only assure my hon. friend that when circumstances permit and when funds are available, we shall resume that work, but I do not hope to be able to do so this year.
