Hou. Mr. PRIOR.
Mr. Speaker, I may be allowed one or two words in reply to the hon. minister, in order to congratulate him on at last having brought down this most meritorious measure. I suppose that when the Bill comes before the House we shall have a better chance of discussing- the different clauses in it; but I would like to draw the hon. minister's attention to one or two matters. He has informed the House that it is not intended that the non-commissioned officers and men of the permanent corps should be called upon to contribute to any superannuation fund. I would ask him whether the officers of the Northwest mounted police pay anytning to the fund ?
