Mrs. Fairclough:

In that event, there could be no hope at all of proceeding this year at least.

Mrs. Fairclough:

I may say I am pleased that the architect is in Hamilton. Maybe I can do something from that end.

Mrs. Fairclough:

Can the minister tell me at what stage the negotiations are at the present time, and how soon work might commence on this project? I know that is a difficult question to answer, because one never

knows how long it is going to take to draw plans. As a matter of fact, this property has been standing idle for some time. I believe negotiations were started about two years ago. Just prior to the election of 1949 the old building was demolished and the land was levelled. In the meantime a few signboards have been erected on the property, and the rumour is abroad that the property is to be resold. I take it the minister's remarks would effectively deny that rumour. I am glad, because the building is vitally needed in Hamilton where the government departments, some of which the minister has mentioned, are housed in various buildings in different sections of the city. When given up by the government departments, the space in these buildings could easily be rented.

At one stage in the proceedings a member made the remark to the Hamilton city council that it was hoped the erection of this building would be commenced this year, so that when the autumn of the year came along and construction trades were in need of work this particular project might ease the local situation. From the minister's remarks I would think that is a rather remote hope. Does the minister expect the work to commence this year?

Mrs. Fairclough:

Mr. Chairman, I trust the applause is an indication of approval. With reference to this item, and the details which appear on page 225 which indicate an office building for Hamilton, and the appropriation listed in the amount of $300,000, does it refer to the proposed building at the corner of Caroline and Main streets in Hamilton?

Mrs. Fairclough:

I noticed the $99,000 payment in last year's estimates. This $300,000 then will not do more than pay the purchase price of the property.
