Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the leader of the opposition (Mr. Hanson) asked me about regulations to be issued under the National Resources Mobilization Act, with reference to the terms under which men are to be drafted for service in the defence of Canada.

These regulations will be issued in part by the Minister of National War Services and in part by the Department of National Defence. They have necessitated conferences between the ministers and officials of the two departments, and I can assure my hon. friend that the regulations will be in shape to be tabled before prorogation.
