1. (a) Under the regulations, all gentlemen cadets on leaving the college with a diploma of graduation or a certificate of military qualification, who have not obtained a commission in the royal navy, or in his majesty's regular land or air forces, or in the corresponding naval, land or air forces of the other portions of the empire, are required to accept combatant commissions in the R.C.N.V.R., or the non-permanent active militia or the non-permanent active air force. Having thus become established in the various arms of the service, full scope is provided for their appointment to active service units.

(b) According to available information there were, as on the 17th May, 1940, 534 ex-gentlemen cadets of the Royal Military College serving in the active service components of the sea, land and air forces of Canada and Great Britain.

The total output from the Royal Military College in the past twenty years has been about 900. This means that in the 9th month of the War, 60 per cent of the entire output from the Royal Military College in the past twenty years is already serving.

2. Action has already been taken through appropriate channels to inform district officers commanding of other ex-gentlemen cadets who are anxious to serve in the Canadian active service force.

Mr. ROGERS:

It is understood that the civil service commission has received a large number of applications from qualified mechanical engineers. When the department requires professional assistance of this kind, application is made to the civil service commission and the appointment is made by them.
