Mr. J. S. ROY (Gaspe):
Mr. Speaker, under standing order 31 I wish to move the adjournment of the house for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance following further developments of a very grave nature. What I want is an immediate secret session of the house to discuss certain grave events which have occurred within the past few' days in the St. Lawrence, about which this house should be fully informed. I cannot give details in open session because it would give information to the enemy, but my information leads me to believe that there is reason to fear that persons responsible for the protection of our coastal waters have been negligent in their duty.
