I think it is most unfair that we should take up these estimates when we have had no opportunity of investigating the question of immigration before the Committee on Agriculture and Colonization. There was a meeting one day this week when Mr. Pedley was before the committee. He is to be before the committee again to-morrow, and then it is proposed to have the deputy minister and Mr. Preston. I think that evidence should be taken and reported to this House so that if any hon. members wish to discuss it they will be in a position to do so.
