Mr. Claude Wagner (Saint-Hyacinthe):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of National Defence.
As a result of the telegram sent to him by Mr. Powers, the chairman of the Union of National Defence Employees, can he tell us whether it is true that sometime this month some 2,400 employees will be laid off, of which 1,025 are in Quebec, and specifically 600 at the Valcartier base?
