Mr. Bryce:

Would it be the policy of the present government in building new prisons or in constructing additions to existing prisons that may be made from time to time to make arrangements so the young prisoners and first offenders could be located in one prison while the more hardened prisoners could be kept in one of the older prisons?

Mr. Bryce:

I might say, in fairness to the minister, that I have been working on it from different angles without any success whatever. I will certainly give him the particulars of the case, because it is deplorable that Canada neglects a young widow in that way. This man was killed while he was

serving with the air force, but she could not get a pension because he went on leave at six o'clock at night and was killed at eight.

Mr. Bryce:

I should like to ask the

minister a question. It has been drawn to my attention now that under special circumstances you can get a pension. Some time ago I had a constituent of mine whose husband was killed in France while a member of the air force. He left a widow and two very small children. She could not get a pension. Would it be proper for me to bring this before the minister?

Mr. Bryce:

I would not criticize you for the world but I do want to know something about the Hong Kong fund. Is there any money left in it? I want to know what they are going to do with it. Are those people who were at Hong Kong and who are still alive going to get it? I think there were 26 people who were never found; what is going to be done with the share of the 26 missing men? My friend the hon. member for Kootenay West (Mr. Herridge) in his remarks covered practically everything that could be said on this subject at this time and I wish to express my agreement with what he said about the disability pension being raised by one-third. When it was set it was sought to bring the basic pension up in relation to the prevailing wages in the district. In many cases it never did that and this should be taken care of. I know of many cases, and I am sure the minister knows of many too, involving people

who through war service have developed various conditions of ill health and ailments which render them unable to work. When they seek assistance they are advised that their condition has nothing to do with their enlistment and I think some consideration should be given to these matters.

Most of the other points I intended to deal with have been covered by the hon. member for Kootenay West and I support him 100 per cent in the requests he has made. I will be looking for answers to the questions we have raised when the minister rises to deal with our questions.
