Mr. JEAN FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata):
Mr. Speaker, the newspaper " Le Journal," of Quebec, in its edition of Feb. 23, published the following report in connection with the amendment of the hon. member for Selkirk (Mr. Thorson) to the national defence estimates:
The same members who had voted for the motion of Mr. Gauthier voted for that of Mr. Thorson, excepting Mr. J. F. Pouliot, who was absent from the chamber at the time.
I was in the chamber at the time, and I did vote for the item and against the amendment, for the reasons recorded in Hansard.
