EXTRACT FROM LETTER FROM GEORGE E. TURNER, DEPUTY MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE
AND MINES (NEWFOUNDLAND), TO SIR PATRICK McGRATH.



“As to the reservation from License to cut timber over land lying within three miles of the seashore : there is no Section in the Crown Lands Act prohibiting the granting of timber on such land, but it has been the policy of succeeding Governments for many years not to grant Licenses to cut timber over lands so situate.”

* The information contained in this extract was furnished in answer to a query from the Department of Justice at Ottawa, and upon reference to the Attorney General of Newfoundland the latter stated he had no objection to its being used by the Dominion in this case.
