Mr. RALSTON:

So that my question may be plain my hon. friend said' that "S.3's" were either regraded to "S.l", which raised them two notches, as I understand it, or they were put down one notch, making them "S.4". I wondered why, if they were regraded, they were not regraded as "S.2". I wondered why they were jumped two notches. I understand that there is a new standard for "S.l", and that it is slightly lower, to use my hon. friend's own expression than the present standard for "S.l" and lets in a comparatively small number additional to those who were let in under the previous grading.
