I think we might let the amendment go through as it stands this year. If there is anything wrong, it could very readily be put right later. I just want to take this opportunity to say that in speaking in reply to some remarks of my hon. friend from Quebec South (Mr. Power) I made the statement that subsection 4 made no alteration in the law as it existed before this year. I find that it does. My hon. friend from Halifax has pointed out that it does make a difference in that it omits these qualifying words "as to age and physical condition" which he had just mentioned. I think perhaps another year it might be well to look into that. In the meanwhile no harm can be done because the great majority of returned men have not yet reached the age where they would be affected.
