Mr. McLARTY:

The number in training on the last day of February. The hon. member for Vancouver South referred to the number of veterans of the last war and those who had been discharged in this war who were in training. The number in the industrial classes was 436. Perhaps I could give an indication of their ages, as follows:
16 to 19 years
1820 to 29 years
7630 to 39 years
4240 to 49 years
235Over 50 years
65
According to the ages they would seem to be practically all veterans of the last war.
