Mr. BUREAU:

Of course, the amounts

paid for superannuation and retiring allowances do not come under our department, but under the Department of Finance. Those pensions are paid by virtue of the statute.

Mr. BUREAU:

The only thing I can give my hon. friend now is the percentage of the cost of collection of the revenue so far as customs and excise are concerned. I do not

Supply-Customs

think we have made any distinction as between excise and customs. They come under the same head; the same officers perform duties in both branches of the department. For 1923-1924 the revenue for customs and excise was $298,721,419.55, and the expenditure $7,435,931.59, or a percentage of 2.49. As to the income tax, I cannot say. As I have told my hon. friend, we are trying to bring these tax collecting branches under the one head, and although there has been no change made so far, it is contemplated that when the changes are made an economy will beeffected. For instance, if we can get all the income tax officers in the same building with the customs and excise officers, rent will be saved and the overhead be less. The plan-I will not call it a fusion-of bringing together all the collecting branches of the department so far as that is possible has not been completed yet, but is still under consideration.
