Mr. Brooks:

Yes, I think that is correct. I was greatly surprised that the former government, when it decided to take on the costs of gallantry awards for the second world war, did not at that time make arrangements to take on the awards that were being paid by the imperial government for world war I. There have been negotiations with the imperial government toward the end of having this matter adjusted. The matter is under consideration now and I hope that it may be finalized at a not too distant date in the future.

Mr. Brooks:

I might point out to the Leader of the Opposition that there is still a reluctance on the part of the British government; and what applies to Canada applies to every other part of the commonwealth. The matter will require a great deal of adjustment. Two years ago when I was in London I took the matter up with the minister of pensions there. We both agreed that it was a splendid thing to have accomplished but at that time we just did not see how it could be done. However, we have carried on correspondence since then and I hope some solution may be found.
