Mr. CRERAR:

If the hon. gentlemen on the other side will settle the differences between them I might say that there would be involved in dealing with this matter a tremendous amount of work, and I would

suggest to the hon. member for Rosedale (Mr. Clarke) that if there is some special information he desires, it will gladly be furnished, but as the inquiry stands, a tremendous amount of work would be involved in preparing the return.

Mr. MacNICOL:

I must correct what I said. It was not my hon. friend who did not know anything about it. When the Speaker read out my name I was not listening intently, and I did not notice that I was referred to as the mover rather than the seconder. It was myself to whom I referred.

Hugh Alexander Stewart

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. H. A. STEWART (Leeds):

May I inquire of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe) whether there is any intention of taking any action in connection with the recommendations and reports which were laid on the table of the house this morning, including an order in council passed on March 7 in connection with the proceedings at the international labour conference? At the same time I should like to know whether there will be an opportunity of discussing them. I do not know whether the estimates of the Minister of Labour (Mr. Rogers) are passed.

Mr. STEWART:

Then there may be an opportunity to discuss the matter when his estimates are under consideration. I should also like to know why an important matter like this, dealt with by order in council on March 7, has not been brought to the attention of the house until to-day.

Right Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice):

I will submit the question to my hon. friend the Minister of Labour (Mr. Rogers). I may tell my hon, friend that the Minister of Labour has not yet gone on with his estimates, but they are expected to come up either to-night or to-morrow.

With regard to the draft recommendations of the international labour conference, I believe that the government has already done what is within the limit of its jurisdiction. So far as all matters which come under provincial authority are concerned, the recommendations have been already sent to the

Civil Service-Report oj Committee

various provincial governments. I will see to it that my hon. friend the Minister of Labour completes the answer to the questions of my hon. friend.

Mr. STEWART:

I was a little concerned to know, regarding the matter dealt with on March 7, which appears to be of sufficient importance to be the subject of a statement on the orders of the day, why a statement was not made until the last two or three days of the session.
