Hon. J. L. RALSTON (Shelburne-Yar-mouth):

Mr. Speaker, I desire to ask
leave of the house to move the adjournment to discuss a definite matter of urgent public importance in connection with the dismissal of between two and three hundred officers and men of the Royal Canadian Air Force without regard to their families, their overseas service or period of enlistment, and the embarrassing situation which may arise if they are forced by the necessity of employment to accept service with another nation. I submit that the matter is one of urgent public importance because of the lack of notice given and the necessity with which this great body of young Canadians is faced in order to make arrangements for employment.

Topic:   ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE
Subtopic:   MOTION FOR ADJOURNMENT TO DISCUSS MATTER OF PUBLIC IMPORTANCE
