Hon. L. P. PELLETIER (Postmaster General) :
The hon. member for Westmorland called my attention to this matter the other day, and I thought he was right. I brought the matter to the attention of my deputy. At first sight he thought that the hon. gentleman was wrong in his statement of facts, but I told him that my hon. friend was sure of his facts. I asked him to look into the matter so that I might be able to give the hon. member for Westmorland a proper answer. Since then Dr. Coulter has been unwell, and that is the reason why my hon. friend has not yet received an answer.
