Hon. W. P. MULOCK (Postmaster-General):
I am glad to advise the hon. member that arrangements have been made for some considerable time for parcels and letters to be handled wherever the Canadian troops move. He will understand that naturally it will depend on the transport available. Mail will have to go first, and any available space which
will be allotted, I presume, by the representatives of the British admiralty to the postal authorities in Britain will be used1 as far as possible equitably for the handling of parcels to the extent that space warrants it. Of course necessities, munitions and food, will come first, but any extra space will be utilized for the purpose mentioned.
