That being the case, yesterday I do not know that the minister quoted from a letter. I do not know that he quoted necessarily from a document. I believe that the hon. leader of the government in the House did make a statement on this yesterday. At that time the hon. government House leader said that if this was a letter or a document it would be tabled in the House. I might have misunderstood. However, he also said that if this was a briefing note, which is different from a document as I see it, then that would not be brought into the House.
How do we get to the bottom of this? Evidently the Minister of Veterans Affairs is not here so he cannot tell us whether he quoted from a document or not.
