Edward Mortimer Macdonald (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. MACDONALD (Pictou):

The Quebec Chronicle does not know what it is talking about, for the percentage of officers to men has not changed for years. I quite agree with the criticism as regards pay, and that is one of the reasons why the vote is being reduced- we are reducing the pay of all men in the permanent force, from the higher ranks down to the private. I shall be very glad to give to Hansard a statement showing the change of pay which my hon. friend would desire to have.
