Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Munitions and Supply):

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member for Temiscouata (Mr. Pouliot) asked his question when the orders of the day were called at the last sitting of the house. This is the first opportunity I have had to answer his question. An answer has been prepared, and I shall now read it.
Whilst A. E. Bradfield is not now and never has been an employee of the Department of Munitions and Supply, he was employed in January of 1942 by the Department of Finance, treasury branch, and is nowworking under Mr. F. E. Wood in the accounting section of that department.
This is the first opportunity I have had to give this answer. I think it answers everything my hon. friend mentioned in his speech. I do not know the purpose of the speech, but I wish to say that I try to treat hon. members as courteously as I can, and to give them the information asked for as quickly as possible.
