Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver Centre):
Yes, in round numbers about 45,000. That number is approximately correct.
Apart from agriculture, therefore, we have harnessed to the war effort over a million men; that is, in a little more than two years we have exceeded under our voluntary system the total man-power effort of four and a half years of the last war. These are only round figures; they are not by any means exhaustive. But on the studies now in progress, our manpower policy must ultimately be determined.
Now I approach my conclusion, with the [DOT]indulgence of the house.
