Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Broadview):

I would ask the Minister of National War Services (Mr. Gardiner) whether it would not be possible to allow women at least to send in their registration cards by mail as is done with income tax forms. That was the procedure in Australia, which I have discussed here for three or four years in connection with the need for a real national register. Women are asked whether they can do plain cooking and other irrelevant questions. All these answers could very well be given through the post office, especially in weather like this, thus saving a good deal of time.
