Mr. Stanfield:

Mr. Chairman, on a question of privilege, may I for a few moments revert to the matter of war graves?

Mr. Stanfield:

I should like to speak about war graves and to associate myself with the remarks of the hon. member for Nanaimo, that the remains of boys killed in Korea be brought back to Canada. I realize that the circumstances in connection with the burial of boys killed in France and Belgium in the first and second great wars are very different from the circumstances in connection with the boys killed in Korea. Korea is a country which will not be and has not been visited by many Canadians, nor do I expect it will be after the war is over. A boy named Leslie Field, from my own town, was killed there, and also another boy. Those are the only

two from my part of Canada. We hope there will not be a large number of our boys killed over there.

In view of the fact that Korea is a dismal, bleak and entirely foreign country, I believe we would be wise to do as the Americans are doing, namely, to bring the remains of our boys home so that they may be buried in graves in Canada and monuments may be erected to their honour. I would certainly like to see this done, and I recommend it to the minister's department.

Mr. Stanfield:

I should like to thank the minister and his department for the interest which they have taken in the rehabilitation of the marshlands in our province, and also for the good work of the engineer, Mr. Parker. I know the farmers in my constituency are

Supply - Agriculture

very grateful for getting their lands fixed up again. We were wondering just what program the minister and his department intended carrying out during the coming year, especially in the province of Nova Scotia.

I would be grateful if the minister would give a brief explanation of that.

Mr. Stanfield:

I know of one case in particular where a man was blind in one eye and had only 20 per cent sight in the other. They would not give him the blind pension. I have known of other individuals who were nearly as bad, and when they came before the board they were told they could not qualify for the pension. I do not know whether it was for political reasons or not, but it always seemed rather peculiar to me. Will the minister state how blind a person has to be before he can get the pension?
