Mr. Speaker, I desire to ask leave of the house to move, seconded by the hon. member for Souris (Mr. Ross), the adjournment of the house under standing order 31 for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely the position in which some 500 veterans of the city of Montreal now find themselves after having used their gratuities and reestablishment credits for the purchase of motor cars to be used as taxicabs and in the formation of an association known as the veterans' taxi owners association of Montreal, which was organized and directed by one Leopold Ferland, while an official of
the Montreal office of the Department of Veterans Affairs, in such a manner that the veteran members are in grave danger of losing both their gratuities and reestablishment credits and thereby their opportunity of becoming reestablished and rehabilitated into civilian life.
