April 13, 1945

Mr. MACDONALD (Kingston City):

My hon. friend says, up to the present time. I think that the figures that I gave him for Cornwallis were up to December 6, 1944; that was for the capital cost. The figures I have given for Sydney were up to February of this year. There might be a slight increase by now over the capital figures I gave, but I do not think it would be very great. The figures I have given on cost,of equipment should be added to the figures I gave on April 4 for capital costs.

Mr. MACDONALD (Kingston City):

We have sent around a questionnaire to all our men, but we have not the complete returns in as yet. We have not asked them to sign up; we have asked them to indicate whether or not they are prepared to go to the Pacific. Our ships are so widely scattered that it is difficult to get the whole story.

Mr. MACDONALD (Kingston City):

The total I have here is 654. That has been very considerably reduced from what it was at one time when we had more than 2,000 serving there. That means on loan to the Royal Navy; it does not include certain people serving in motor torpedo boats and other craft where the crews are all Canadian. The figure of 654 would cover, I think, cases where there are a few Canadians on British ships, perhaps two or three officers for each ship. It does not take into account instances where the ship is all Canadian manned even though owned by the Royal Navy.
