Mr. J. H. Rooney (St. Paul's):

I should like to address a question to the Minister of National Defence, and I apologize for not advising him of it. It arises out of something I saw in a newspaper I was reading yesterday. Can he tell me whether or not we are at war? The decision of a judge of a court in the United States, as contained in yesterday's paper, was that we are not at war and that as a result thereof the personal life insurance policies of two men who were killed in Korea were affected. I feel that this might have a serious effect on some of our troops overseas and I believe the matter should be investigated.

Mr. Rooney:
