LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I beg to lay on the table copies of order in council P.C. 1367 approving the report of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe) to His Excellency the Governor General in Council respecting certain measures enacted by the legislature of Alberta; and of order in council P.C. 1368 disallowing an act of the Alberta legislature for the security of home owners and an act to impose a tax on certain securities in the year 1938.

I had hoped if possible to table these orders in council before the house adjourned yesterday, but as the signature of His Excellency the Governor General had not been affixed until a minute or two after six o'clock, it was not possible to do so.

Mr. H. G. CLARKE (Rosedale):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport (Mr. Howe) in connection with a question I directed to him about ten days ago with respect to the transfer of wheel shops from Toronto to London. I have in my hand a letter from the secretary of the International Association of Machinists, stating distinctly that he understands there are twelve cars of defective wheels, four cars of new wheel blanks and three cars of axles rebilled to London from Toronto. Would the minister give me information in reference to the matter, because it is indicated that the work was being taken from Toronto and sent to London?

Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I referred the questions asked in the house to the management, and was advised by them there was no work being transferred from Toronto to any other place. It is simply a case of an oversupply of products in the Toronto shops, and the work is suspended until the oversupply is used.

It is a question, Mr. Speaker. Have these men taken upon themselves the responsibility of imposing their will and judgment upon the democratic province of Alberta composed of many thousands of people?
