Mr. Speaker, on May 4 the hon.

For a copy of all tenders made by tenderers in competition with Lunam Construction Company Limited respecting all projects in Saskatchewan, since the first day of June 1949 and to date, In which the said company was the successful tenderer.

Just before entering the house I was handed by my officials photographic copies of this return. I have not had time to send it through the Department of the Secretary of State (Mr. Bradley) but I am ready to table that return now.

IMMIGRATION

STATEMENT AS TO EXCLUSION OF MRS. MONICA FELTON

LIB

Walter Edward Harris (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Hon. W. E. Harris (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration):

Questions

might give aid and comfort to the Queen's enemies.

The attorney general of the United Kingdom gave consideration to a charge of treason against Mrs. Felton, based on a broadcast she made from Moscow, but concluded that there was insufficient evidence. If hon. members are interested in the views she expressed* they are set out in part in column 2678 of Hansard of the United Kingdom, volume 488, for June 14, 1951. I do not intend to quote her, but even if no charge of treason was laid against her, I think hon. members would, after reading the quotations, agree with me that she does not appear to have any special claim on Canadian hospitality.
