Mr. Speaker, the circumstances as stated by the hon. gentleman (Mr. Monk) are practically the facts. I am not thoroughly familiar with the judgment, but I know the result of the judgment is what the hon. gentleman has stated. In addition to that, however, I am aware that the judge, in delivering that judgment, expressed the hope- I think it was a hope-that the government might look further into the case, that although he had not been able to go into the case on account of some technicalities, he still thought it was a case that the government might fairly investigate further. I may say to the hon. gentleman that I have had it under consideration recently and that I felt that parliament would consent that the sum of $1,000 which was voted two years ago, I think, and not then accepted, should be again offered to Mr. Larose. In view, however, of the statement made by the hon. gentleman I am quite willing that a further examination of Sir. Larose should be made by a competent surgeon. I was not aware that his condition of health was serious. I was under the impression that he was able to do a certain amount of work, but if he is entirely unfitted for doing work perhaps it would be desirable that a further examination of the case should be made, and I shall be very glad indeed to have that done if necessary.
