The CHAIRMAN (Mr. Blain):

Perhaps I should direct the attention of the committee to this rule:

Speeches in Committee of the Whole must he strictly relevant to the item or clause under consideration.

I am only reading this in the hope that we will be able to keep order in the committee. The committee, I am sure, is as anxious about that as I am.

Mr. BLAIN:

But the hon. gentleman is making a charge that it was because of political influence that a large number of men got past the local medical officers. So,

I ask if he knows anything about political pull having been used in his own district concerning which he is well informed. My information is that the' medical officers generally did not belong to the political party of the Government, but rather to the other party.

Mr. BLAIN:

If the inspector makes the statement that the child shall be taught

longer than two years the child is taught longer than two years. My hon. friend must remember that Regulation 17 was put upon the statute-book not as against the French-speaking minority, but as in their favour.
