I think I can give the hon. gentleman (Hr. Oliver) the information which he asks for. The land commissioner in my department and the Deputy Minister of Justice had the subject before them, and they have been engaged from before the beginning of the session endeavouring to get the matter into shape so that it can be placed before the courts as quickly as possible. Of course, the hon. Minister of Justice and myself have given instructions that no delay should occur. I presume that both of the officials concerned have been endeavouring to expedite the matter so that it will be got into [DOT] shape in a very short time now.
