Mr. J. J. DENIS (Joliette):

My hon. friend spoke from a long distance, and I am not sure that I caught quite clearly everything he said. I may tell him and the members of the committee that if the committee was not convened for to-day it was because copies of a report had to be prepared. The committee has been called for next Tuesday. The order was given by me to the clerk to have the committee called for Tuesday of next week, when all the papers will be available to members of the committee.

Mr. DENIS (Joliette):

I am glad to answer the statement made by the leader of the opposition, all the more so because it was clearer than the question that was put to me a while

Quebec Harbour Commission

ago by the hon. member for Peace River (Mr. Kennedy). The hon. member for Peace River said that twelve copies of the report which is to be submitted to the committee were sent to me, but he forgot to mention that there are twenty-nine members of that committee, and that twelve copies is not sufficient for twenty-nine members Therefore copies have since been made. The committee was not convened yesterday nor to-day simply because the members composing it insisted that these copies should be printed or duplicated in some other way for distribution at the next meeting. Of course, the leader of the opposition was not conversant with this fact when he criticized the conduct of the chairman for not calling together the committee. Let me point out that there is no attempt at fencing or hedging. The committee will be called together next Tuesday, and all hon. members will be welcome to attend the meeting. The committee will proceed in the same manner as any other committee. I think this explanation should be satisfactory to the house.
