here that my hon. friend is entirely in error in stating there was any organization on this side of the House to keep this *thing going all night by relief squads. Whoever told my hon. friend that was drawing on .his imagination, because no such thing was plannell.
I might add that I communicated to my right hon. friend the leader of the Opposition, three days ago, I think, the news that Dr. Beland's release was likely to take place, but we were under injunction to say nothing about it in public. I am very glad that the anticipation then conveyed to us has now been fulfilled. All of us who know Dr. Beland have the very highest appreciation of his character, of his ability and of his services as a public man. We have all been greatly distressed by the fact that he has been detained so long in Germany and has endured such hardships, and there is none who will not join, as we have joined just now, in the most warm recognition of the fact that he has been set at liberty.
