MR. CAMILLIEN HOUDE


On the orders of the day: Mr. LIGUORI LACOMBE (Laval-Two Mountains) (Translation): I wish to ask the hon. Minister of Justice (Mr. St. Laurent) a question. Has he received the medical report following the examination of Mr. Camillien Houde, together with the document he is supposed to have signed? Hon. L. S. ST. LAURENT (Minister of Justice) (Text): Mr. Speaker, the hon. member has inquired if I have received a report from the physicians concerning the physical condition of Mr. Camillien Houde, and if I have received a certain document he is supposed to have signed. I know of no document he is supposed to have signed, and I have not yet received any report from the medical men who, I understand, have made a physical examination of Mr. Houde. I inquired this morning, and no report had yet reached the Department of Justice.


LIB

Mr. SPEAKER:

May I suggest that this question might have been placed on the order paper. Any further questions along this line will certainly have to be so dealt with.
