RETURNED SOLDIER LEGISLATION


On the orders of the day: Mr. CAMERON R. McINTOSH (North Battleford): Mr. Speaker, on Friday, April 15, I directed this question to the Minister of Pensions and National Health (Mr. Mac-Laren): If after further consideration he is now in a position to inform the house and the country whether the government will bring down this session any new or amending legislation concerning returned men. The hon. minister said he would reply to me early this week. This is Wednesday, so I think I am within my rights in asking him if he has the answer ready to-day?

I rise to a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker.
