Mr. ABBOTT:

The purpose of this
bill is to insert in the Naval Service Act a section similar to one contained in the Militia Act, by which the sea cadet corps, the naval cadets, will be authorized in the same way that the cadet corps for the army are now authorized under the Militia Act. During the war the sea cadet corps were authorized by order in council under the War Measures Act.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Topic:   NAVAL SERVICE ACT
Subtopic:   PROVISION FOR SEA CADET CORPS
