My hon. friend from Essex East reminds me that the institute of microbiology of Montreal is also engaged in that field. I say this not in the way of boasting of the fact that these inquiries take this long,
but simply to ask hon. members to realize that a proper sense of proportion suggests that inquiries of this kind in other countries as well as in Canada are necessarily time consuming, and even after they are concluded it is not possible to take startling and widespread action in a matter of days or weeks. We shall, however, be looking forward with interest to the report of the commission, at which time we shall be able to ascertain what action it is proper to take to deal with whatever problem is outlined in the over-all field and, I repeat, if in the interim a study of the material now available enables me to make any useful recommendation to my colleagues as to what could be done on an interim basis I shall do that, and I have arranged that the material should be studied, from that point of view. This study is going on now.
