Sir JOHN FORREST - My attention has been drawn to the matter. It appears that some of the accounts for the divisions named were by some mistake charged to. the other division ; but before the statement was finally revised for presentation to Parliament, the errors to which the honorable member refers were discovered and rectified. I do not know why there was such a hurry togive the information to the press before revision; but those are the facts of the case. The correct information was placed upon the tables of both House of Parliament.

Suggest corrections
