I do not think it would
be-fair to allow the preamble to go through without some consideration or discussion. If it is not convenient or practicable to discuss the general question, I wish to draw attention to this statement in the preamble:
Whereas. enough men do not volunteer to provide such reinforcements.
I claim, on behalf of this House and this country, a statement from the Government from the authorities who are bringing in this Bill, as to why enough men do not volunteer to provide such reinforcements.
