Charles Joseph Doherty (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Unionist

Hon. Mr. DOHERTY (translation):

Had not the hon. member from Three Rivers (Mr. Bureau) so hastily interfered, my intention was to answer my honourable friend from Terrebonne.
I must say that the Government have no knowledge of the two incidents referred to by the hon. member. If he will -give us the names of the interested parties or the names of the officers-should they be known to him-that would! help us a great -deal in taking the necessary steps, so as to ascertain whether his statements were true. As to the necessity of giving orders so that there should be no high-handed dealings, I must say that all the officers have received-the most express and formal instructions to avoid all that could be even described as partaking of, the n-atu-re of. such behaviour on the part of men so inclined.
