Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Yale):
The statement to which we have just listened from the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Claxton) was in the nature of a rapid synopsis of past, present and the future. I want to add a few words with regard to one portion of this matter, namely, the Royal Canadian Navy. Before I do so I should like to ascertain from the minister what his ideas are with regard to the discussion which should
take place. The trend of his remarks this year all led one to suppose that he desires to look upon the defence forces as one service.
