UNEMPLOYMENT RELIEF

LIB

Thomas Reid

Liberal

Mr. THOMAS REID (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I desire to ask leave to move the adjournment of the house on a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely, to discuss the situation that has arisen in the municipality of Burnaby in the province of British Columbia, where hundreds of men who have been employed on unemployment relief work have not received wages or payment for work so performed, on account of a dispute between the government of British Columbia and the federal government as to accounts rendered; and further, that these men are going in privation and want and their situation is of a dire and urgent nature.

Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Mr. SPEAKER:

The motion which the bon. member seeks to make is regulated by standing order 31, which provides:

Leave to make a motion for the adjournment of the house (when made for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance) must be asked after the ordinary daily routine of business (standing order 15) has been concluded and before notices of motions or orders of the day are entered upon.

I think the time has passed, at this sitting of the house, at which the application can be received.

Well, I take that view and I make that statement. It may not agree with the views held across the floor of the house but that is my opinion. As I say, I have no objection to the discussion taking place but I would make this suggestion. Would it not be well to let the matter stand until to-morrow, when the Minister of Labour (Mr. Gordon) is in his place. He has had no notice of it.
