1. Preliminary investigation of the provincial lands portion of the Delta was undertaken by the dominion and province jointly and preliminary investigation of the Wood Buffalo park area was carried out by the dominion. Results were disappointing due to abnormal water conditions during the investigation period, the data received in the preliminary

report indicating the necessity of very careful investigation before any construction was undertaken.
2. The provincial government has cooperated in the investigation of the area but as the project has not reached the development stage it has not contributed any funds for that purpose.
3. The dominion and province are continuing the investigation jointly j*f the provin-cially-owned section of the delta, while the dominion is continuing its investigation of the Wood Buffalo park area.
