Mr. Speaker, as I said yesterday, the facts in Mr. Grace's letter parallel the facts that have been raised by a military police investigation. Certainly we view these allegations with severity.
In fact it was the departmental officials, the deputy minister and the former chief of defence staff who alerted Mr. Grace, the information commissioner, to this problem. It was the department that did it once it found out about these irregularities.
We are certainly concerned with what he has found out in his letter, but given the fact there is a military police investigation with all it entails, and given that the facts in the military police investigation are consistent with those outlined in Mr. Grace's letter, it would be very wrong for me, in case I were to prejudice the jurisdiction and the legal proceedings of any individuals, to answer the hon. member's question as he has posed it.
