Mr. Speaker, I desire to ask the hon. Minister of Justice (Mr. Doherty) if his attention has been called to an item which appears in Saturday's Free Press, and which is also referred to in this morning's Ottawa Citizen, in regard to the release of one Thomas Riley from Kingston Penitentiary. It is reported in both articles that there were two Rileys in that institution and that the one who was sentenced about a year ago to fifteen years for manslaughter was by mistake released for the other Riley. If this is true it certainly reflects very strongly on the administration or management of that institution. I would ask the minister if his attention has been called to this fact.
Subtopic: RELEASE OF THOMAS RILEY.
