Sir WILFRID LAURIER:
I have a telegram this morning from Vancouver to this effect:
Fifty coal miners from county Durham, England, stranded here owing to being induced to come here to work in Canadian collieries at Cumberland, Vancouver Island. Please bring matter up in House of Commons, and ask for information by Minister of Labour. Situation of men is serious, having given up homes and left wives and families there.
Has the hon. Minister of Labour received any information in regard to this?
