§ Mr. E. Brown
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part, as I have stated previously, a number of agreements 345 have been made for various districts, and discussions relating to other districts are still proceeding. The services of my Department are at all times available to render such assistance as may be possible and desired.
§ Mr. Lawson
Is the Minister not aware that some of the conditions are scandalous and that this matter is being neglected?
