Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, if by "investigation" the hon. member means whether any attention ' is being given to the problem at this time, I can say that that is being done, that I am personally considering the representations contained in the brief submitted by
(Mr. Abbott.]

the Saskatchewan government and comparing those representations with the pertinent parts of the report, and with recommendations that have been made about the project by the engineers of the P.F.R.A. organization. If the hon. gentleman intended to ask whether anyone had been engaged to make further engineering studies at this time, then the answer would be in the negative.
