Mr. JACQUES BUREAU (Three Rivers):
Are the men in class D exempted under medical certificates obliged to report under the new Order in Council which has been passed? My reason for asking is that I received a letter from a mother who has a sick son who is away from home, and she wants to know whether she has to call him back to report when the order is issued, or whether the exemption of the Medical Board would be sufficient to justify him in not reporting to the registrar.
Major-General MEWBURN: Under that Order in Council the registrar has to notify the men between the ages of 20 and 22 to report. Those notices are only to be -sent to the men who have been already examined and found in Category A. It was not the desire to call back the men already examined and -found in a lower category. The idea was not, if possible, to have these men come up for rehearing. We are anxious to get only the men who are medically fit. If later on the emergency increases, it m,ay be considered advisable to have another medical examination, but our intention is not to disturb any of those men who already hold a certificate as being medically unfit.
