James Layton Ralston (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

This is the whole policy. As a matter of fact, over the radio to-night, what I proposed to do was to outline generally what I had already outlined to the house with regard to the primary duty of reserve units and the method whereby men could enlist either as members thereof or as men who were not members of reserve units. I also intended to refer to the plan to which reference has been made to-day. The only thing that will be new in connection with anything that is said in the broadcast will be with respect to the plan for affiliation or integration of the reserves.
