Mr. BLACK (Cumberland):
I would ask the minister, in connection with this item of $250,000, how many men were drawn from the armed services and put back in the mines of Nova Scotia during the last fiscal year. Also how many were taken from other industries and put back in the mines of Nova Scotia, and how many, if any, were taken from the farms and put in the mines? I should also like to know how many men who were called up under the National Resources Mobilization
Act for military service, were assigned to the mines, work in the mines, being given priority over the military service they would otherwise have undertaken.
