Mr. BALLANTYNE:

I can now give my hon. friend from Quebec East (Mr. Lapointe) the information he asked for. The naval expenditure for the year 19101911 was $1,719,017; 1911-1912, $1,233,456; 1912-1913, $1,085,660. Then we got into the war years, and the expenditures were very large. If my hon. friend wants the figures for those years, I can give them.

Mr. BALLANTYNE:

There were small expenditures running up to about $300,000 or $400,000 for the upkeep of the Naval College and thing of that kind, but millions were spent which were charged to the War Appropriation.

Mr. BALLANTYNE:

I cannot recall the exact phraseology now, but they were trying to get out of the contract owing to the market price of steel and brass having gone down very considerably.

Mr. BALLANTYNE:

I can certainly

say most positively to my hon. friend that there is no qualifying clause in it at all, and from over thirty years experience' in business I can say that n'ot all firms by any means but very often very good reliable firms, when the market goes against them, do try to get out of contracts. It has happened to me many a time.
