Mr. JOHN BRACKEN (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day are called I should like to ask a question of the Prime Minister. I have not given notice of it, but I do not ask him to answer immediately. I would appreciate it however if he would give consideration to it and answer it later.
My question arises from a report which I find in the Montreal Gazette and which, I understand, has been published in a good many newspapers, respecting a statement yesterday by the Minister of Justice (Mr. Usley).
In view of the statement made by the Minister of Justice and in view of the controversy as
to the interpretation of the evidence in the Hong Kong report, will the government give consideration to either printing or mimeographing further copies of that evidence? It appears there is only one copy, and not one person in ten thousand will see that document unless we can find a way of making it available to more people. Will the government give consideration to that suggestion, with a view to mailing more copies of the evidence available if practicable?
