Mr. LESAGE:

Laurier Liberal

1. Has the Military Service Act, respecting medical examinations, been amended by Order in Council?
2. If not, is the medical examination sworn to and made by the family physician, still given the same consideration under the Act, as if said examination were made by a military medical officer?
3. Is the Government aware that, in many cases, no consideration is given to the medical certificate of a family physician, and that in

most all cases said certificates are given only a minor consideration by the Military Medical Boards?
4. Is it the intention of the Government to check such abuses, and concede the consideration which a responsible medical profession deserves?
