Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

May I ask the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Ralston) how long it will take to get the answers to these three questions, which have been allowed to stand? I realize it is quite a job but perhaps he could give me some indication.

James Layton Ralston (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

I cannot answer categorically. I would have to consult my colleagues the ministers for air and navy. With regard to the army, as has already been pointed out, we have no record of racial origin of those enlisting. The suggestion was made to me in the house that at least we might take the names of those who appeared to be of French origin and make a compilation in that way. That can be done and, as a matter of fact, it is now completed, but that would not give entirely accurately the information which is asked for. I can only say that if the information is asked for in the present form-that is, French-Canadian origin-I know no data from which it can be given.

Questions stand.
