Mr. Gordon Graydon (Peel):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Justice, arising out of the statement he made today about the espionage case. Without attempting to minimize the responsibility of the United Kingdom government with respect to the Fuchs case, I should like to ask the minister a question I directed to another minister in a committee but which did not wholly come within that minister's department. Does the minister know whether or not the person who had the notebook was carefully examined as to the qualifications and history of all the people mentioned therein? I mean the 436, not just the 150 who were Canadians. As I understand it, six were United Kingdom citizens.
