§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can state the cause and extent of the disturbances in Montreal recently between French and English Canadians.
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
These unfortunate riots appear to have been begun by students at McGill University on Tuesday last as a demonstration against the offices of French newspapers accused of anti-British feeling. Students of Laval University retaliated by pulling down the flag on the office of the Star, a British paper. Subsequently a mob took part in the rioting. A telegram received last night informs me that no further rioting has occurred.
