It is article VIII of the treaty which reads:

Each high contracting party shall acquire and place al; the disposition of the commission any land within its territory-

_ Mr. BENNETT: Then what does the minister mean by saying that the commission shall buy land? The government buys it, not the commission. Read the agreement.
