Mr. H. J. BARBER (Fraser Valley):
Mr. Speaker, based on considerable correspondence, and also on copies of petitions I have received, I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King). I have been urged, and I have no doubt other hon. members have been, to support a measure, promised in the speech from the throne, which would set up in Canada a system of unemployment insurance. Will the Prime Minister inform the house whether he is
likely to bring down such a measure during the present session? Perhaps he has a general statement to make in the matter; if so, I believe the country would be pleased to hear it at this time.
Subtopic: INQUIRY AS TO INTENTION TO PROCEED WITH LEGISLATION AT THE PRESENT SESSION
