March 18, 1949

Hon. Joseph Jean (Solicitor General of Canada):

The hon. member was kind enough to send me notice of his question. A few applications for commutation of the death sentence in this case have been received, but no decision has been reached. May I say that in such cases a decision is seldom announced before the last few days preceding the date set for execution, which in this instance is March 30.

Mr. JEAN:

I cannot say definitely. There is a great deal of work to do. As far as I can see, we may not have a report before next year.

Hon. JOSEPH JEAN (Solicitor General):

This is for an improvement we want to bring about in the remission service. As hon. members know, we have to interview inmates for

Supply-Justice

clemency purposes. Today we have only the Ottawa branch and not enough personnel to go to all the institutions and have personal interviews with the inmates. We intend opening a branch in Vancouver, another in central Canada and another in eastern Canada, so that more frequent interviews may be held with the inmates for these purposes. I believe it will be a great improvement.

Mr. JEAN:

This is for the combines investigation branch. As everyone knows, this office has more work today than it had last year, and it appears necessary to provide this extra amount for fees for legal counsel, special assistants, reporters, special commissioners and witnesses. The investigation into the breadbaking industry which is being carried on involves expenditures which were not considered when recommendations were made for the main estimates.
