Mr. MALCOLM:

1, 2 and 3. Porte St. Jean (St. John's gate) was demolished about thirty years ago and the street widened. A retaining wall was built on either side of the new street. The north retaining wall has been pronounced dangerous and is being taken down and replaced by another retaining wall, located as requested by the Quebec civic authorities. This location allows for the widening of the street and the area will be taken over by the city of Quebec.

4 and 5. Mr. Armand Lavergne applied for an injunction against the city of Quebec and the Department of National Defence enjoining them from proceeding with the work, but subsequently withdrew his application.
