Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

Is the minister referring to the Dumoulin case?

Mr. ST. LAURENT: No. I saw no report of what the leader of the opposition refers to as the Dumoulin case, that I asked to have investigated. I was referring to the case to which the hon. member for Parkdale referred, that of Jacques Sauriol, whose speech was reported as having been made on July 9.

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

The reason why I asked is that Mr. Dumoulin is a member of the government of Quebec-at least, a supporter of the government of that province. To put the attorney general, who is also of the same political faith and belongs to the same party, on that case, I should think would add complications which would be very serious. I am hopeful that the attorney general's advice will

not be accepted too readily by the Minister of Justice, and I am also hopeful that the investigation will not take too long.

Item stands.

Progress reported.
