Mr. Chairman, I want to express our complete approval and support of the remarks made by the hon. member for Laurier. I also wish to bring to the minister's attention the fact that when we concluded discussion of these estimates previously we were on item 729, and it is obvious that the officials thought we were going to proceed with that item because the gallery is flooded with all these great engineers from the water resources branch. There is no branch in any department of the government whose officials spend more time in the gallery than those of the water resources branch. They are all here this afternoon, so it is obvious they expected that the government would proceed with item 729. I trust we will.
