Allegations of such links have been the subject of almost daily reports in Quebec newspapers during the summer. They first came to light in just prior to the adjournment of the Que- bec natioinal assembly for the summer recess. j The assembly adjourned July two weeks after the crime in- quiry began its summer break. Premier Robert Bourassa said earlier this month the crime when it will study police files which al- HELD OVER BY POPULAR PUBLIC DEMAND 'The Bud Nelson Duet1 From WASHINGTON direct from engagements in Las Vegas and Hawaii THIS WEEK AT THE VENTURA and INN COALDALE l3dge Pierre former Quebec labor received money for his election cam- paign from Montreal under- world figures. Existence of the files becams known after three weeks of in- tensive questioning in the pro- vincial legislature by Robert Parti Qusbecois house leader. This questioning resulted in Justice Minister Jerome Cho- quette admitting that telephone tapes collected by police during surveillance activities impli- cated a now-deceased cabinet minister and other politicians with underworld figures.

Mr. Bourassa said the in- since its had included a study of the relations between the underworld and politicians. It was inevitable the inquiry study all' the reports mentioning Mr. Laporte and two Liberal party Jean-Jacques Cote and Rene Gagnon. If the reports were they were a serious matter that could not be put he added. The premier said he had re- ceived vague warnings about Mr. Laporte during and after the formation of his Liberal cabinet in 1970. The labor minister had shown excessive in se- lecting acquaintances but his links with alleged underworld figures never led him to com- mit wrongdoings while in office. The allegations concerning Mr. Laporte came to light after Mr. Burns began to question why the contents of tslephone tapes used in the investigation of Jean-Jacques sus- pended Montreal police were never used during an in- quiry into the police chief's con- duct. REFUSED COMMENT Mr. Choquette refused to comment on the affair while Mr. Saulnier's case was bsing studied by the Quebec Court of Appeal. On June the appeal court ruled the police commission was acting within its powers when it found Mr. Saulnier in- competent and recommended his dismissal. A few hours after the court's Mr. Choquette said the tapes had not been turned over to the inquiry because a more important investigation might have been compromised. He said the tapes were ob- tained during a vast operation conducted by provincial and other police forces investigating international drug opsrations. He later told the Quebec leg- islature names of in- cluding a now-deceased cabinet were mentioned in the files of the police investigation. Mr. Laporte is alleged to have met underworld figures on the eve of the 1970 provincial election. the man who arranged that Jean- Jacques has issued a statement saying Mr. Laporte had no knowledgeof whom he was to meet with that night. The main reason for the he was to con- vince Mr. then respon- sible for Liberal parly organ- ization in 12 Montreal-area rid- that a system had been es- tablished by another party to carry out electoral fraud.
