Mr. SAMUEL FACTOR (Spadina):
should like to submit a question to the Minister of Transport (Mr. Howe). I have received a petition signed by a large number of employees of the Canadian National Railway
shops at Leaside, protesting against their dismissal taking place to-day. I understood from the Minister of Transport the other day that he was conferring with the railway management and the heads of the unions concerning the matter of lay-offs. I wonder if he would mind giving the house the result of that conference.
