Hon. T. A. CRERAR (Minister of Mines and Resources):

Mr. Speaker, a few days ago the hon. member for Comox-Alberni (Mr. Neill) drew attention to the fact that in the file relating to a proposal for transfer of the Yukon territory to British Columbia the correspondence was incomplete. Upon looking it up, I found that the order calls for correspondence from April 1. There were a few letters exchanged in March, and I table them herewith.
