Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Lake Cenire):

should like to ask the Minister of Justice a question arising out of the answer to a question which is to be found at page 1003 of Hansard. In that question I asked:
Was a submission made to counsel following delivery to the Minister of Justice on the McGregor report on the milling industry for an opinion to ascertain whether the recommendations were such that proceedings either under the combines act or the Criminal Code should be taken?
Inquiries of the Ministry
And also:
Was a legal opinion secured from the law officers of the crown or other counsel on the question as to whether the limitation of actions provided for in section 1141 of the Criminal Code applied to prosecutions under the combines act?
The answer was yes, and the counsel were named. Will the minister table the replies given by Mr. Kelly and Mr. Phelan?
