Mr. MACDONALD (Halifax): (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

1. N.R.M.A. soldiers serving in Newfoundland are serving outside of Canada and the territorial waters thereof, but are not serving overseas in the sense that they are not serving under the administrative control and direction of Canadian military headquarters in Great Britain but are serving under the administrative control and direction of national defence headquarters, Ottawa.

2. Canadian army routine order 3456, appearing as an appendix to Hansard, dated 20th March, 1944, which deals with farm leave, does not apply to army personnel serving in Newfoundland. They are, however, eligible to be considered by national defence headquarters for the grant of compassionate leave on the same basis and subject to the same considerations as apply to the grant of such leave in the case of army personnel serving under the administrative control and direction of Canadian military headquarters in Great Britain.
