Mr. BOUDEN (Halifax).
My hon. friend might be correct in what he understands about it, but I would not think that the language of the declaration is such as should have been used by a gentleman in Mr. King's position. It would be perfectlv competent for Mr. King to have stated in his declaration : I did not do such a thing ;
I did not perform such au act; I did noc make such a visit. Instead of doing that he has seen fit tq present to the House- and his minister has seen fit to read to the House-a statement in which the words of my hon. friend from Jacques Cartier are characterized over and over again in separate paragraphs of this affidavit as untrue and as false.
