Mr. POWER:

I thought it was the intention of the committee to strike altogether from the law all question of support by the children to their widowed mother. That was my idea, and that is the idea conveyed to me by members of the committee, that from now on there would be no question on the part of the Board of Pension Commissioners of considering whether a son who was in Western Canada should be supporting somebody who is living, say, in Nova Scotia. If, however, it is not the intention of the committee to do that, we have not improved the state of the widowed mother to any appreciable degree.
