1. It is the policy of the government to develop a national park in each province, provided the province makes available for this purpose, free of charge to the Dominion and free of encumbrance, a compact area of national parks standard. So far the provincial government of Quebec has not suggested to the department that it take over for administration as a national park any area in Quebec, and no representations in this regard seem to have been made direct to the department by other parties.
2. (a) and (b) answered by No. 1.
