Mr. W. K. ESLING (West Kootenay):
I rise to a question of privilege. Under date of August 5, 1927, there is a despatch from Victoria, British Columbia, stating:
Definite arrangements for a survey to map out the route of the Golden-Revelstoke road were made at a conference here this morning between Hon. Dr. J. H. King, federal Minister of Health and Hon. W. H. Sutherland, provincial Minister of Public Works.
That is for British Columbia. The despatch proceeds:
The province and the Dominion will undertake the surveys jointly under present plans.
Then under date of February 14 of this year there is another despatch from Victoria stating:
Construction work on the Revelstoke-Golden highway will be commenced during the present season.
On February 16 I placed on the order paper two direct questions.
