I did not lay down any general proposition. The hon. gentleman asked whether the combination of the Department of the Interior, the Department of Indian Affairs and the Geological Survey under one minister had worked satisfactorily. I said that so far as I knew it worked satisfactorily last year. I did not say that other departments could be grouped together. There are departments and departments.
