Mr. MARTIN:

It is a case I might say
in regard to which I have had some correspondence with the department. A man towards the 31st of December, 1912, came to the conclusion that no extension of time was to be granted. Finding that it was severe winter in the western provinces and thinking that he would not be able to locate this scrip to any advantage, he decided to surrender his scrip to the department. He did so. Later on he found that an extension of time was to be granted and he wants this scrip back. Will there be any amendment in this Bill-perhaps it is merely a matter of administration- will that man be able to get that scrip back, considering the fact that he could not locate at that time and also that he did not know that there was any extension of time?
