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):

I desire to table copy of order in council P.C. 2685, approved by His Excellency the Administrator on the 19th June, 1940, containing a declaration by the government of Canada of principles for the avoidance of labour unrest and for the regulation of labour conditions during the war. This is a copy of the order which I mentioned on Tuesday last. It would have been passed on Monday had it been possible for me to be in council for a sufficient length of time that day; or on Tuesday, had it been possible to take up this matter then. It was passed yesterday.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I should be very glad to have that done, though I may say to my hon. friend that it will appear in the Canada Gazette in any case. That may meet his wish, but it might as well appear in the votes and proceedings also.

I would

second the suggestion of the hon. gentleman. I can imagine no place more innocuous than the Canada Gazette from which to obtain information.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I had an eye to economy in the matter of extra printing. The press already have complete copies, and I have no doubt the contents of the minute of council will appear in the newspapers this afternoon or in any case to-morrow morning.
