Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):
should perhaps preface my question by saying that I have not been able to give notice of it to the Minister of National Defence. There have been many rumours, semi-official press reports, and reports in the press which seemed almost official, in regard to the eventual disposition of General Kurt Meyer, who was brought to Canada last week. I wonder if the Minister of National Defence would consider making an official statement to the house in behalf of his department and the government so that we may know and the public may be informed as to exactly what is going on in connection with this man. I raise the question to-day because some veterans in my own constituency have been somewhat figitated over it, and they are anxious that someone in the house should raise the question in order that the government may have an opportunity of making a statement as soon as possible.
