I have been waiting to give an oral statement with respect to this question. Dr. Hume visited the oil fields, but not for the purpose of making geological investigations. We have a private letter from him written to the deputy minister, and there will be a report from Dr. Hume upon this oil field this year. He has instructions to make such a report.
