May I address a question to the Prime Minister? Shortly after Great Britain was reluctantly obliged to take over the French fleet the French government severed connections with the British government and the French ambassador handed in his letters at the Court of St. James. Shortly before this unfortunate event a new representative to the French government was sent to Ottawa. If I am in order I should like to ask what is the present relation between the Canadian government and the representative of the French government in Ottawa.
