Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Mr. CRERAR:

I shall be glad to take into consideration the representations mads by the

Supply-Mines-Soldier Settlement
hon. member for Yale (Mr. Stirling). In the administration of soldier settlement I am informed that no settler is asked to leave his land unless he either refuses to pay anything or it or has no prospect whatever of making a success of it. Naturally there are cases of this kind. The department is dealing every day with repossessed lands, in some cases transferring them back to the municipalities, in others making a sale and salvaging as much as possible out of the land. I cannot speak with knowledge of the particular cases cited by my hon. friend, but I shall have inquiry made into them, and if my hon. friend wishes I shall be glad to have the director of soldier settlement send him a report dealing with the particular representations he has made.
