Mr. E. LAPOINTE (Kamouraska):

Mr. Speaker, I ask the hon, the Minister of Militia and Defence (Major-General Mew-burn) if the Order in Council affecting all unmarried men who- were twenty, twenty-one or twenty-two years of age at the time of their registration last fall applies equally to those who have since married after having obtained their exemption. The Order in Council refers to unmarried men without mentioning whether it applies only to those iwho' were actually unmarried or also to those who were unmarried on the 6th of July, 1917.
Major-General MEWBURN: The Military Service Act provides that every man who was married after the 6th of July, 1917, will 'be considered asi unmarried, and I think that still holds good in regard to this.
