LIB

James Layton Ralston (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

Mr. Speaker, this is the kind of question which has been asked in other cases. It asks in effect that we attempt to segregate the enlistments, in this case by counties, and give the record of enlistments accordingly. This would involve, as hon. gentlemen will realize, a tremendous amount of work. It would mean the examination of each individual attestation paper, not only those for the counties named but also those coming in from the rest of Canada, because men from these counties may have enlisted somewhere else. I would ask the hon. member if he will drop the question.

Question dropped.
