July 22, 1960 (24th Parliament, 3rd Session)

PC

Alfred Johnson Brooks (Minister of Veterans Affairs)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Brooks:

Yes, I think that is correct. I was greatly surprised that the former government, when it decided to take on the costs of gallantry awards for the second world war, did not at that time make arrangements to take on the awards that were being paid by the imperial government for world war I. There have been negotiations with the imperial government toward the end of having this matter adjusted. The matter is under consideration now and I hope that it may be finalized at a not too distant date in the future.
