Hon. Mr. OARVELL:

I think the hon.

member will bave to change the question, because I cannot understand what it means. The hon. gentleman asks if Mr. Laparre Marsan, Chief of Police of Levis, received from the Government instructions to dismiss J. B. Paquet, of Levis, who was a watchman at the Lauzon Dry Docks. The Chief of Police of Levis has nothing to do with the men employed at the Lauzon Dock.

Laurier Liberal

Mr. MURPHY:

Referring to the following item in John Bull, of March 2, 1918 :-

"There is serious discontent among the Quartermaster ranks in the Canadian Army Medical Corps. A number of the men who have been in the Army since war broke out are still Honorary Lieutenants-whereas fresh men from Canada, who have never seen Service, arrive with the rank of Honorary Captain or Honorary Major. This is grossly unfair, and we are taking the matter up with Ottawa."

1. Have any representations been made to the Government regarding the alleged discontent in the Canadian Army Medioal Corps?

2. If so, what action has been taken in the matter?

3. Has the Government received' any other complaint regarding the Overseas Medical Service?

In reply to the first question an announcement will be made in due course. As to question No. 2 it is deemed inadvisable in the public interest to make any announcement.

In answer to the fourth question I may say that the subjects for discussion are confidential until after the discussion shall have taken place.
