Mr. Chairman, the Korean
veteran is entitled, as I understand it, to the benefit of this act upon his discharge because this act reads "ten years after his discharge". The fact that he is discharged makes him entitled to the benefits of this act. That seems to give him in some cases the preference over some other veterans. As the minister says, that question is being considered at the present time. The man who kept on with his service after the Korean war, as I say, by the fact that he takes his discharge later on may become entitled to the benefits of this act because this act says "ten years after the date of discharge". As the minister says, the matter is presently being considered and there may be amendments to bring them more in line with the way that other veterans were treated if that is necessary. But of course hon. members will be given notice of them.
