[Questions answered orally are indicated by asterisks],


MILITARY SERVICE ACT.

UNION

Mr. MacNUTT:

Unionist

1. What is the total number of "draftees" under the 'Military Service Act," up to 1st of February, 1918?

2. How many were exempted for farm work?

3. How many were declared "medically unfit?"

4. What disposition has been made of the "medically unfit?"

'Hon. Mr. DOHERTY: Some little time ago I asked if the hon. gentleman would be good enough to make somewhat clearer what he contemplated by the word " draftee." Does he mean those who have passed through the Military Service Act and who have been ordered to report, or does he mean men actually taken into the force, because his conception of the meaning of the word makes a difference both as to the answers that ought to be given

and as to the department that ought to answer the question?

Question stands.
