Sir WILFEID LAURIER:
It would appear that most of these Orders in Council are purely technical, and so far as my information goes at the present time, they are unobjectionable. The objection of my hon. friend (Sir Sam Hughes) is well founded. We have to take these rather on trust than anything else. For my part I am satisfied, because I have looked at them, and possibly I am the only man in the House who has done so.
a.nd other soldiers and the dependents of those killed while on active service, and1 any other matters relating thereto or connected therewith, he commended to the consideration of the Government.
