Mr. LADNER:

I wanted to ask the minister a question with respect to this section. This section provides, in short, that the widows of pensioners who draw pension during a period not exceeding ten years shall receive pension, but if the period is longer than ten years the widow does not receive a pension. Phis affects about 174 blind people and the more seriously disabled cases drawing 80 per cent pension and over.

Mr. LADNER:

Because that is the class

under this section. I understand-and I have this information also from parties in different parts of the country-that the soldiers' representative body, the Canadian Legion, desired to have that principle extended to a period longer than ten years, and it seems to me that once the principle is established- as it properly should be established-of granting a pension to the widows, it should not be cut off at the period of ten years. There is no good reason that I can see why, if a man lives and draws his 80 per cent pension for nine years and nine months, his widow should get a pension, while if he lives for ten years and one 'month his widow does not get a pension. I am going to suggest to the minister and to the committee that the principle should be extended for a longer period, and

Pension Act Amendment

I do that in the same spirit that has characterized this whole question and raised it above the level of party politics.
