with this matter, a board was constituted in Nova Scotia for the purpose of looking into the claims in the various counties of that province. The number of these claims is somewhat larger than in other parts byreason of the entire population of the province having been called out at the time of *one or both of the raids in question. Information as to the legislation as to which the hon. gentleman has asked will be given by the Minister of Militia and Defence in due course.
