Hon. D. J. Walker (Minister of Public Works):
I had been hoping to receive reports on both those projects before my estimates were considered. Replying to the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate several months ago, I took it for granted that I would have the reports by this time. However, I have not received the reports yet. I have done my best to hurry them up, but I cannot say exactly when they will be received. As I say, I had hoped to have them before my estimates are considered, but now I do not know whether I shall or not.
