Hon. H. A. BRUCE (Parkdale):

I was
about to ask a somewhat similar question, and I also notified the Prime Minister of the fact. My question is: The newspapers report a

As this might have some effect on the lease-lend bill before the senate, will the Prime Minister inform the house what steps he has taken to refute this slander?
