Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

I should like to ask a question of the Secretary of State for External Affairs. This question has to do with flood conditions in the Red river area of Manitoba, and it is based upon an answer given on May 3, 1948, to a question asked by the hon. member for Provencher (Mr. Jutras). Has the international joint commission, at any time since the date of that answer, given consideration to ways and means of preventing the recurring floods in the area through which the Red river flows?
