Mr. MEDERIC MARTIN (translation):
Before this item is passed I would like to ask the hon. Prime Minister a question. Has he received a letter from the mayor of Montreal in which I requested him to do something to help the " out of works " in that city?
I do not know whether the Hon. Prime Minister has received that letter, but this I can say, it remains without reply to this day. I should very much like to know why.
I have spoken in French because my right hon. friend understands that language. I have had no answer to that letter which, as mayor of Montreal, I wrote to my right hon. friend.
