Mr. LEMIEUX:

I't has occurred to me that in the far Western Provinces through ladk of sufficient 'advertising and on account of the long distances, there might be a very limited number of tenderers, and as a result the pulpwood limits, which are very valuable to-day, might be sold for a song. What is tlhe policy of the department with regard to 'these sales? Is an outside price fixed after a preliminary cruise of the limits? I understand that in Quebec and Ontario the outside price is generally based on the report of the cruiser.
