Humphrey Mitchell (Minister of Labour)

Mr. MITCHELL:

Selective service mobilization regulations, section 10 (9), provide that a person employed in agriculture shall be granted a postponement from military training unless it is established that such person is not an essential worker in agriculture. An interpretative letter has been sent to all mobilization boards advising them of the policy of the government.

Selective service civilian regulations, paragraph 207, provide that no person employed in agriculture shall enter into other employment, except service in the armed forces, or seasonal or temporary employment outside of an urban municipality for not more than 60 days in any year when such employment does not interfere with agricultural production, unless he has obtained a permit from a selective service officer.

Norman Alexander McLarty (Secretary of State of Canada)

Mr. McLARTY:

It would be extremely difficult to give any satisfactory answer to this question as drawn. Part 2 of the question refers to income taxes, superannuation and

other deductions. I take it the hon. member for Battle River means compulsory deductions, because there are deductions where war savings certificates or bonds are purchased. Subject to this qualification I would ask that the question pass as an order for return.
