Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I am only

speaking from memory, but I think my hon. friend will find that the $300,000 was voted for the initiation of the work and that sums of money have been voted each year since having regard on the one hand to what

parliament thought should be spent and on the other hand to the real requirements of the work. I think my hon. friend will find that in some years the vote was very small, while in other years the commission received much larger sums. For example, I think the vote has gone as high as $115,000.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

Before we further consider the suggestion of the name, I wonder what is the real reason for the change? I do not think we have got it from the minister. Has the minister, for example, any reports that there will be better service, greater consideration given to that which is by all odds the more important department of the two, that of soldiers' re-establishment, which spends infinitely more money and requires infinitely more time than the activities which can be followed by a Dominion department of health? If we have any such reports, I think we should know what they are and who make them. At all events, at some considerable expense to the department of reestablishment there has been an investigation or a series of investigations made, I think, quite near where I come from, West York, and we have the Hunter and McGregor combination working there. Have they brought in recommendations for this?
