Mr. Speaker, my question is for the minister of defence.
This morning Major Vince Buonamici, who is testifying in the dying days of the Somalia inquiry, accused the government of covering up what was "at least a manslaughter and at worst a culpable murder". He said that there was a "high level conspiracy" to stonewall the investigation into the shooting. This stonewalling almost certainly led directly to the death of Shidane Arone.
If the minister is intent on shutting down the Somalia inquiry, how will he get to the bottom of these incredible allegations?
