The above payments are irregular in so far as they purport to be a proper charge against
Vote 195, fiscal year 1927-28, on account of work performed and material supplied to the Mental
Hospital, New Westminster, whereas the work was performed and the material supplied in
respect of lands appurtenant to and forming the approach to New Westminster Bridge, as set
out in the " New Westminster Reserves Act, 1923," and to which the name of " Oliver Park "
has apparently been given. Further commitments on this account have been taken care of by
the issuance of a Special Warrant (No. 4) covering " Improvements to Oliver Park " during the
current fiscal year (1928-29).
