Mr. CAMPBELL:

I would draw the

attention of the minister to the charges made by Dr. Bryce who was from 1904 until very recently Chief Medical Officer for the Indian Department. The charges made by Dr. Bryce against officers of the department, I think, are entitled to very serious consideration. Let me read two or three extracts from Dr. Bryce's report: The first reads:

By Order in Council dated January 22nd, 1904, the writer was appointed Medical Inspector to the Department of Interior and of Indian

Supply-Indians

Affairs, and was entrusted with the health interests of the Indians of Canada.

Dr. Bryce goes on to say of himself:

For each year up to 1914 he wrote an annual report on the health of the Indians, published in the departmental report and on instruction from the minister made in 1907 a special investigation of thirty-five Indian schools in the three prairie provinces.

Dr. Bryce continues:

The annual medical reports from year to year made reference to the unsatisfactory health of the pupils, while different local medical officers urged greater action in view of the results of their experience from year to year.

Dr. Bryce, in conjunction with Dr. J. D. Lafferty examined the 243 children of eight schools in Alberta with the following results:

(a) Tuberculosis was present equally in children at every age; (b) In no instance was a Child awaiting admission to school found free from tuberculosis; hence it was plain that infection was got in the home primarily; (c) The disease showed an excessive mortality in the pupils between five and ten years of age; (d) The 10,000 children of school age demanded the same attention as the thousand children coming up each year and entering the schools annually.

Recommendations, made in tihls report, on much the same lines as those made in the report of 1907, followed the examination of the 243 children; but owing to the active opposition of Mr. D. C. Scott, and his advice to the then Deputy Minister, no action was taken by the Department to give effect to the recommendations made.

I would commend this report to the very serious consideration of the minister. I do not intend to discuss the matter at present but I shall bring it up at a future time, and I hope the minister will then be able to give some further information with respect to it.

Mr. CAMPBELL:

The expenditure for 1919-1920 for cadet service was $390,000 and to-day it is $450,000. What is the explanation of the increase?

Mr. CAMPBELL:

It is impossible to

discuss these various items separately. If you cut one estimate it automatically affects the other, and the militia should be considered in conjunction with the permanent force.
