September 19, 1917

Mr. OLIVER:

I do not understand it at all. One part of the minister's explanation was that pensions to men who had served in the Northwest Rebellion and had suffered physical disability, not being covered by the regular pensions vote, required a special vote. That I can easily understand. But I do not recall that the amount of pensions in respect of physical disabilities incurred in connection with the Northwest Rebellion is nearly* so large an amount as this in the item. I do not understand my.hon. friend's reference to pensions payable because of home guard service. I do not object to the payment of pensions that we owe, but I should like to know what we are paying these pensions for.

Mr. OLIVER:

I cannot agree that we

should postpone further discussion of this question for the sake of taking it up at a succeeding session. Not having the -advantage of having at my back a military voters' Bill and a franchise Bill, I may not

be here next sesion, and I would like to do what I can on behalf of those who have served the country at the front. It is part of our responsibility to deal with the matter on their behalf, and I would like to discharge my share of that responsibility.
