Disabled Persons-Allowances paid to him for war wounds and for other disability. He has what amounts to 100 per cent disability.
When the bill was before the house we mentioned this question of the time between the age of 16 when the family allowance stops and when this bill entitles the recipient to receive the pension at 18. I maintain that those two years are important years in the training and care of the disabled person and that those two years could be lost to some degree in the training of a disabled person or with respect to his health. Those two years are just as important as are any other years and during them they are not receiving anything.
The other point is this. If some information were given by the minister as to just what is meant by totally and permanently disabled people, it possibly would help us in this discussion. There is one other matter I wish to mention. I did not get a chance to say anything about it at the time, but there has been some discussion about who is responsible for this bill. I should like to pay tribute to one person who has worked consistently through the years. That person is Miss Eva Warden of Calgary who brought this delegation down to the house. I do not like to use the word "lobby" but she worked very hard in this matter. I believe in giving honour where honour is due; and I believe that Miss Warden should receive great credit for what she has done in promoting public opinion with respect to the bringing in of this bill.
