Mr. ROY:

Mr. Speaker, as to the first remark of the Prime Minister, I think this communication could not be of any value to our enemies, but if the Prime Minister thinks it might, I am very willing that it shall not be recorded on Hansard. Before sending the Prime Minister the information he desires to have I will say briefly that I have on several occasions given the government information on the situation down there; nevertheless the situation remains as it was. I do not think this is disclosing anything that can be of any help to our enemies: I was saying in this letter that the most urgent need for the time being was to send some bombers to Mont Joli and to Gaspe. I am informed that bombers were sent to those two places only after the last torpedoing. I said at the time that the Germans could make a landing to get gasoline and supplies-[DOT]
