Mr. McQUARRIE:

So that there is an arrangement under which the work is to be continued, and it is proposed to continue it this year. An arrangement, in other words, has been made or will be made as to all the work and that work will be confined to the rivers which were set out in the statement that the minister sent over to me. I think it is a commendable thing that the Dominion and the provinces should co-operate in such an important matter and I am not objecting to the arrangement. I hope the minister will not think that I am trying to harass him tonight or to obstruct his estimates.

Progress reported.

On motion of Mr. Mackenzie King the House adjourned at 11.40 p.m.
