So far as disposing of a part of the reserve for farming purposes to white men, as the hon. member suggested, is concerned, it is necessary in all cases to get the approval of the band to the surrender of any of their property. I am not entirely familiar with conditions surrounding such a surrender in Quebec, but I understand that the point arises that if a surrender is made it has to be made to the crown.
