Mr. Gardiner:

I do not think so. I do not think there is any definite objection raised. Within the last two or three weeks they have asked for more information, and they have received that information from our officials at Regina. They are hopeful that some action will be taken on the water board's decision within a reasonable time. I recite these facts only in order to show that I think a little too much emphasis, both outside the house and inside, has been placed on the fact that a committee is being appointed. It is not a delaying procedure, and there is the possibility that it will not delay the procedure at all, because we must have these orders in council, or we must change the whole understanding between ourselves and the provinces before we can proceed in any case.

Topic:   PRAIRIE FARM REHABILITATION
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT OF ACT TO PROVIDE FOR APPOINTMENT AND SUPERANNUATION OF CERTAIN OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES, ETC.
