Mr. A. R. ADAMSON (York West):
I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Ralston). In view of the probable shortage of skilled mine workers will the minister consider: first, asking the recruiting officers not to accept mine workers until the national registration scheme is completed and we have taken stock of our man-power resources; second, the formation of a special pioneer corps of miners who would be trained together so that their specialized knowledge of rock explosives and demolition work would be used to the best advantage?
