Mr. ROGERS:

It is the intention to establish recruiting centres in the interior of British Columbia at certain selected points in relation to certain units that will be included among those now being mobilized. Obviously I cannot give the house a statement of the various permanent recruiting stations which will be established. Normally they would be located Where there were either headquarters or subunits of the non-permanent active militia units. But if a certain part of the country, even under those conditions, finds itself discriminated against, I shall be very glad to consider the advisability of opening recruiting stations there.
