.power on us to place the command ot the forces somewhere else than where section 15 places it. I propose to ask my hon. friend the Minister of Justice (Mr. Aylesworth) a question. What I would like to ask the Minister of Justice is whe-t"er I should understand him to argue that the effect of the provision of section 91 of the British North America Act conferring legislative power with regard to militia and defence was to confer on this parliament any power to place the command of any force, either naval or military, elsewhere than where section 15 places it?
