In regard to the question as to where these oil leases are being located, I was pleased to hear the minister say that some very severe regulations were in force. I hope the minister will take into consideration the possibility of eliminating speculation in oil leases. As the hon. gentleman has been living in Edmonton for some years past, he knows very well the great hardships, that are being suffered because of speculation in
oil leases, and I hope he will take that matter into consideration when he is going over this regulation.
Item as amended, agreed to.
Protection of timber in Manitoba, (Saskatchewan, Alberta, the N.W.T. and the Railway belt in B.C., Tree culture in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, and inspection and management of forest reserves, $1,000,000.
