Richard Burpee Hanson

National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

I am not wrong. I was shocked to find that such was the situation. It is not fair. I think I can turn up the report of the discussion in this house. It was not fair then; it is not fair to-day, and there is no equality of sacrifice or service under the method adopted for the man-power policy of this country in respect of the armed forces.

Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

I think my hon. friend wall find, if he looks at the record of the enrolments-and that is what we call them, instead of "enlistments"-that there is no such discrepancy as he has suggested.

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

Mr. Chairman, this is the major item in connection with the entire army appropriation. I am quite sure there is still some important discussion with respect to army matters under this item, and I will ask the Chairman to call it six o'clock.

Progress reported.

At six o'clock-the house adjourned, without question put, pursuant to standing order.
