Mr. MacNEIL:

I may be misinformed, but I understood that these institutions were not equipped to carry out up-to-date neurological treatment, as that term is understood.
Mr. POAA'ER: We believe we have in the employ of the department, either as consultants on schedule of fees or as part or full-time doctors, as good neuropsychiatrists as there are in Canada, As a matter of fact our people do rate very highly in that line. The year before last a survey was made of these cases, as my hon. friend knows, and I think in almost one hundred per cent of the cases brought before the committee the findings of the departmental doctors were confirmed.
