Mr. QUELCH:

Would the minister or the parliamentary assistant explain the situation regarding the veteran with a dishonourable discharge? It will be remembered that when the Minister of National Defence stated that an amnesty had been granted to those who had deserted in Canada, he said they would not be in a similar position to those overseas, because they would not get the rehabilitation benefits. I was under the impression from what he said that those who had deserted overseas would not be denied rehabilitation benefits; those who deserted in Canada would.
