Mr. FRASER (Peterborough West):

There are other places where the nurses get nothing at all. There should be some allowance for that, because the parents have to supply them with clothing and look after their laundry.

Mr. ILSLEY:

There is quite a difference between the responsibility that the parent has to assume in the case of a child' in a university and in the case of a daughter training as a nurse.

Mr. ILSLEY:

As regards the daughter training as a nurse, she gets board and lodging, and tuition is provided, so that she is not a dependent to anything like the same degree as in the other case. I think I am correct in saying that for a child over twenty-one attending university there is no allowance as a dependent. What I am saying is that you cannot maintain perfection in these things. The speeches to-night would indicate that there should be some allowance. Certainly I do not see why the parents should get the same allowance for a nurse in training as for a daughter going to university. After considering the whole question, we do not think we should extend that, although there is quite a widespread demand for it. We have had a number of letters, but it opens up other classes who sooner or later would probably claim the same treatment as nurses in training. The whole field of apprenticeship comes up there.

Resolution stands.

Progress reported.
