Mr. MacNEIL:

There is a matter which

lies outside the scope of the inquiry of the special committee, but which I think should receive the attention of the minister. I refer to the circumstances of a large number of imperial service men wh,o are in Canada and who were not domiciled here at the outbreak of the war. Their needs are dealt with, of course, through the Canadian representative and the Canadian office of the British Ministry of Pensions. Nevertheless circumstances are such at the present time that their needs are being referred to various municipalities, and in the constituency which I represent a number of municipalities have had reason to complain, feeling that these men should be dealt with by the Canadian government. It has been difficult to explain the situation, and it has been difficult also, in referring the matter to the Canadian Office, to secure a review of their claims such as we usually secure from the Canadian

Supply-Pensions and National Health

pension commission. I should like to ask the minister if he has considered the advisability, in view of the vast array of often disgraceful evidence as to the condition of these men, of making suitable representations to the British Ministry of Pensions that these men may secure redress.

Mr. MacNEIL:

Will the minister permit one item to stand over until the report of the special committee is tabled? Possibly more satisfactory answers could be given at that time to the questions now being asked.

Mr. MacNEIL:

I understand it is the intention of the minister to table at this stage a general outline of the form of questionnaire which is now being used in connection with the compilation of statistics required by the commission. There are three points in regard to which I should like some assurance. First, will the statistics that are now being compiled indicate the ratio of technological unemployment to general unemployment? Second, under this registration what will be the test for unemployability? Has the minister anything in mind as to some uniform test throughout the dominion? In reporting under this scheme of registration will it be possible to escape from the very haphazard methods now prevalent? Third, will the general inquiry enable the compilation of data that will eventually be required by the veterans' assistance commission? Will there be any segregation of statistics dealing with the special problems of ex-service men which undoubtedly will be required by the veterans' assistance commission? I hardly suppose a special inquiry will be undertaken for that commission, 'but it seems desirable that in the general inquiry certain statistics should 'be secured bearing upon that special feature.
