Mr. MacNEIL:

I do not wish to labour the point. The minister knows my difficulty with regard to those suffering from nervous and mental disorders; it has been brought to his attention on previous occasions. There are some 4,500 in that category. He was good enough to say on a former occasion that some attempt would be made to review the situation to determine whether or not their diflfi-

4378 COMMONS

Supply-Pensions and National Health

eulties might be alleviated. Would he be good enough to make a statement as to what progress has been made in that respect?

Mr. MacNEIL:

The act provides that they * shall receive treatment in neurological centres, and that after treatment they shall be assessed for purposes of pension. Are any of these cases being sent to any special neurological centre for any particular treatment?

Mr. MacNEIL:

What is the situation in regard to disabilities other than dental?

Mr. POW'ER: With regard to medical

treatment, the matter is not so easy. In so far as we are able to do so we appoint salaried medical officers through the civil service commission after advertising, so that they may be able to treat men in various districts throughout the country. It must be understood, however, that for the moment we cannot absolutely cover the whole country. Soldiers are in the same position as the rural population generally. There are no facilities right at their door, but as fast as we can provide them, we are doing so. For the moment our hospitals are fairly well filled by treating, either dental or medical treatment, about one hundred a week. We shall get round to dealing with them all as expeditiously as possible.
