Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

On June 5, a week ago today-Hansard, page 3172-in my absence in western Canada, a question which stood on the order paper in the name of the hon. member for Kamloops (Mr. Fulton) was by inadvertence passed as an order for return. The question read as follows:
1. In each department or branch of government or board or corporation set up by the government, how many employees, if any, have been discharged or been in any way released for reasons having to do with security?
2. What was the effective <Jate in each such case?
3. What were the position and duties of each such employee at the time of his discharge or release?
I discussed this matter earlier this morning with the hon. member. On the basis of that discussion I should like to move that the order for return be rescinded and that the question be restored to the order paper, and I shall answer it later when the questions on the order paper are dealt with.
