LIB

Mr. RALSTON: (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

1. (a) There is no record of any enlisted men on active service who, besides their military duties, carry on a private practice in their civilian professions.

(b) In so far as officers are concerned, there are no records to show that any officers on active service practise a private profession in addition to their military duties. Certain medical officers who are members of the reserve army are called up from time to time for periodic employment with standing medical boards and the wives of such officers are entitled to receive dependents' allowance for the number of days in eaclh month in which t'heir husbands perform military duties. These officers are not members of the active forces and are, in fact, civilian practitioners. It is reasonable, therefore, to expect that they

would continue to maintain their private practices during those 'hours when not actually employed on military duties.

2. See answer to question No. 1.
