The premier told reporters affer a cabinet meeting that Marcel Masse, minister of inter- governmental affairs, has cate- gorically denied making a state- ment that such a coalition is a possibility in the event of the Union being elected with only a minority. Mr; Masse was reported to have told students in suburban Ste.

In a party press release today, Mr. Masse was said to be astonished that his words had been twisted to suet an extent "Not only did I not speak of a coalition, but I even stressed the fact the Union Nationale wiH hold an absolute .majority in seats after the April elec- tion."
