Mr. ROGERS:

Quite so. Actually I believe the amount payable to a mother in the circumstances mentioned is based upon the amount paid under the Pension Act. I should like, however, to take note of both the cases mentioned by my hon. friend, and I will see that they are made subject to review. I shall give him any further information that may be required on that point.

Mr. ROGERS:

I should like to thank my hon. friend for bringing these cases to my attention. The other day the Minister of Finance announced that the regulations concerning dependents' allowances would be reviewed in order to discover cases of hardship and to seek remedial measures where such cases were found. I quite agree with my hon. friend that it is difficult to distinguish between the soldier's wife without children and the mother he mentioned.

Mr. ROGERS:

Owing to the small number of light tanks available, it was not considered possible for maintenance reasons to distribute these tanks among the mobilized and unmobilized mechanized cavalry and tank units in Canada. It was therefore decided to retain these tanks at the Canadian armoured fighting vehicles school at Camp Borden, bringing in as many personnel as possible from the mobilized mechanized cavalry and tank units to Camp Borden for training, and it was proposed that certain tanks would be allotted to these units for all purposes when they were concentrated at Camp Borden.
