Mr. GOLDING:

There is another section of that editorial to which I would like to draw attention. It says:

Besides these things, it is provided that any person voting at the plebiscite "shall thereafter be ineligible or incompetent to apply for or to be granted on the application of another, the postponement or exemption from military training" provided for in the national war services regulations or any amendment thereto.

This is very important.

Mr. McLARTY:

In connection with that question, the answer which I gave previously applies equally. It is only if they apply under the two particular sections of the regulations under the National Resources Mobilization Act-it has been suggested that I amplify this-dealing specifically with conscientious objectors, and with Mennonites and Doukhobors.

CCF

Joseph William Noseworthy

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. In reply to a question put by the hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Hanson) reported at page 779 of Hansard of Monday, February 23, the Prime Minister told the house that he was in sympathy with representations made to him recently by the Civil Liberties Association and indicated that the Department of Justice was considering the extent to which the representations would be acted upon and that an announcement regarding the matter would be made in due course. Some hon. MEMBERS: Order.
