NATIONAL REGISTRATION

FURTHER STATISTICS AND TABULATION OF SPECIALIZED OCCUPATIONS

LIB

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of National War Services; Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Hon. J. G. GARDINER (Minister of National War Services):

Some weeks ago I

tabled statistical information secured from the records of the national registration dealing with the province of Ontario; and, later, similar information dealing with the whole of Canada. Subsequently I tabled further information for Ontario dealing with persons in specialized occupations in that province.

I now wish to lay on the table statistical information dealing with persons in specialized occupations for the whole of Canada. This report indicates the number of persons engaged in or capable of being engaged in specialized occupations. Any firm desiring to get a list of names, addresses and information with respect to the number of persons in its locality trained in a particular trade or calling should communicate with the Department of Labour.

Does my hon. friend wish to ask the permission of the house to withdraw his bill? If he does, he may move for pel-mission, but if his purpose is to make a speech, I am afraid he will have to forgo it.
