The above information has been obtained from Indian agents and is as complete and up-to-date as can be reported by the Department of Mines and Resources. Some Indians live off reserves or are located some distance from the agencies and for these reasons the agents may not become aware of Indian enlistments for some time after they take place.

Mr. RALSTON:

I should like to answer this question verbally. There is no board which deals exclusively with the hospitalization of dependents of men in the fighting forces. There is a board which includes a portion of that work under its special authority, that is, the dependents' board of trustees which was referred to by me on page 1932 of Hansard. This board was appointed by order in council P.C. 18 of January 2, 1942, and one of its powers is to pay supplementary grants or give special assistance to relieve misfortune and meet domestic emergencies, including serious illness of a member of the family.
