Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Minister of National Defence):

My attention was drawn to the question the hon. member had asked in my absence, and I find that because of information from the government of Alberta, one-hal-f of the squadron of Lord Strathcona's Horse which had been at Sarcee camp carrying out a musketry course, was by order of the district officer commanding, brought back to its quarters in Calgary and held in readiness with the rest of the squadron to protect government property should that be required; otherwise, the only movements of militia which have taken place and are in process are those to and from central camps for training purposes. Those are proceeding strictly in accordance with schedules arranged some time ago.
