1. Is it the intention of the Government to advise the Imperial authorities that it would be desirable that His Majesty King George V should proclaim a general amnesty throughout the whole of His Empire, in favour of those who violated the Military Service Act either in England or in the Dominions, on the day of the official proclamation of Peace?
2. If so, is it the intention of the Government to take advantage of the official proclamation of the Peace in Canada in order to proclaim a general amnesty to the defaulters of the Military Service Act, especially to the sons of farmers who have always understood that their services on the farms were just as valuable as those who had enlisted for overseas service?

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
