Hon. Mr. PRIOR.

Has the minister come to any conclusion with regard to the clothing to be worn by the men in camp ? In the report of the general officer commanding, ] he expresses himself as heartily in accord with the clothing worn at London and Niagara camps last year, namely, straw hats and flannel shirts. In a hot climate like this in summer, it is of immense benefit to the men in the ranks that they should be allowed to wear some clothing of that kind, instead of tunics that are buttoned up and very warm.
