Establishment of en indepen- dent veterans' bureau to func- tion under a separate section of the Pension Act was also proposed. Special recognition will be given to veterans of Hong Kong because these men "experienc- ed the most rigorous and de- bilitating conditions ever en- countered by Canadian prison- ers of said Mr. Dube.
