Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).
I can hardly agree in the view expressed by my right hon. friend with regard to the scope of the Act. It does not make the amount of pensions depend on what was paid in, but on the length of the service. Even if there was not a dollar paid in, still those who served their full time would be entitled to a pension on that account. We are not discussing the details of the Act, and it will be quite proper for us to make any modifications which will extend the principle of the Act to the cases mentioned by my hon. friends from" Toronto and Alberta. I am not in possession of all the information in the hands of the Minister of Justice, and I would like to know whether, in his remarks, he referred to the provisions of any statute ?
