I cannot say. You will have to ask our solicitor. He came up to Ottawa, he went to the Department of Veterans Affairs, I believe, and he did not get very far there so he packed up and came back home.
That was in 1952 or 1953.
Even at that time the hon. member for Burin-Burgeo was a member of this house, a supporter of the government of the day. If I am not mistaken, at that time the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate was the representative of Newfoundland in the cabinet, and I believe secretary of state. The hon. member for Grand Falls-White Bay-Labrador (Mr. Granger) was there at that time serving as executive assistant to the minister from Newfoundland.
