Hon. Alvin Hamilton (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources):
Mr. Speaker, the hon. member gave me notice of his question, and in reply I should like to say that the government of New Brunswick has accepted in principle the dominion government's proposal to share in a co-operative program with us respecting forest access roads, on the basis that they will be built by the province and that we will pay half the sum and 50 per cent of the money provided will go into labour. But I should like to point out once again to the hon. member and to the house that the program is to be planned and carried out by the province; and even though we have been informed of the total amount of $100,000 we have no way of knowing any particular place where they intend to build access roads. We only examined their proposal to see that it meets the criteria that we have laid down.
