Mr. H. W. Herridge (Kootenay West):
Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask a question of the Minister of Industry who, I understand, is Acting Secretary of State for Exernal Affairs, which is a novel experience. In view of reports that an employee of the Department of External Affairs did communicate with the press in Washington and New York with respect to the number of communists who were supposed to be behind the people's government in the Dominican Republic, has the Minister had any opportunity to assess the evidence which has come to his Department to date,
and is he in a position to make a report to the House on this aspect of the question?
