Mr. ST. LAURENT: I have not the date, but it was just as soon as we got the information that these articles had been located in the city of Quebec. It states:
I have now been informed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that certain Polish art treasures which were brought to Canada by ithe Polish authorities in 1940 and which subsequently disappeared have mow been located at l'Hotel Dieu, Quebec city, Quebec. The articles at this location are said to be contained in twenty-three trunks and one wooden box and to have been stored previously at the Redemp-torist Monastery at Ste. Anne de Beaupre.
As we agreed with your solicitors, we are communicating the information to you for any further action you and your solicitors may wish to take.
On the orders of the day:
