Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

I had not heard anything about Enrique Montenegro and Angelo Parra until the hon. member telephoned my office this morning about them. I know nothing about their political background or about what they may have been promised by the government of Guatemala; but I made inquiries and found that they were to be held in Montreal for further inquiry, and that no order would be made about them until after the inquiry report had been submitted to the minister and he had had an opportunity to consider it.
