Mr. JAMES SINCLAIR (Vancouver North):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question to ask the minister of National Defence of interest to all the Canadian Scottish regiments, and one which I believe will be of interest also not only to your Honour, but also to the other seventy hon. members who, like yourself, are either of Scottish birth or of Scottish descent. On Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of hearing the very excellent pipe band of the Canadian Women's Army Corps when it appeared on parliament hill. I was surprised, however, to find that they were not attired in the dress characteristic of a pipe band. The members of the British Army Women's Corps Pipe Band wear tartan kilts; indeed, any recruits to the corps enlisted in Scotland may wear the kilt. I would ask the minister whether consideration will be given to outfitting in a similar fashion this fine pipe band, made up of members of the Canadian Women's Army Corps.

Mr. SINCLAIR:

The average leave is only two weeks, and, with the twelve days provided by the bill, a man would be back at camp in time to poll his vote. This will apply only to men who have been repatriated from overseas or who are on one month's leave, men who are away out in the country far from any service polling station. I doubt whether there will be a hundred men affected by this.
