All but $20,000. The

amount of the increase, as my hon. friend will see, is the amount of salaries paid without bonus; that is, we have absorbed this amount less $20,000, the difference between $586,223.29 and $566,67341.

Mr. CALDWELL How much has been paid in superannuation allowances to those who have retired during the year?

Mr. BUREAU:

I am not in a position to give my hon. friend that information. The amounts paid for superannuation are kept in the Finance department; the various departments are not in possession of those details.
