Mr. Brooks:

I just want to make a short statement in reply to the hon. member for Middlesex East. I can understand his concern about the destruction of trees around the Westminster hospital, because that is one of the most beautiful places I have seen anywhere. We have called in the provincial forestry people and we are doing everything we can to save these trees. We have had to destroy 100, but we hope to save many of the rest.
