"FAIRMILE FUDDLE"


On the orders of the day:


NAT

Herbert Alexander Bruce

National Government

Hon. H. A. BRUCE (Parkdale):

I should like to direct the attention of the Minister of National Defence for Naval Services to an editorial appearing on page 4 of Boating Magazine for January-February of this year, under the caption "Fairmile Fuddle". I shall not read the editorial, because I presume the minister has a copy of the journal. I should like to ask these questions: First, where are the five boats which are reported to have left Midland early in November, 1941 and, second, was a qualified officer in charge of those boats?

Hon. ANGUS L. MACDONALD (Minister of National Defence for Naval Services): Mr. Speaker, the hon. member did not give notice of his question, and as I have not seen the article I should like to read it and get the information for him.

PRICE CEILING


On the orders of the day:


PC

Alfred Henry Bence

Progressive Conservative

Mr. A. H. BENCE (Saskatoon City):

I should like to address a question to the government, for attention of the Minister of Finance. My question has to do with a news item appearing in yesterday's Ottawa Journal, headed "One hundred commodities are not affected by price ceiling." Will the Minister of Finance give to the house within the next few days an explanation as to the reason for removing the price ceiling on the one hundred odd commodities referred to in that item? Will he at the same time state whether or not there will be a similar removal in connection with other so-called seasonal goods, such as those which are purchased for winter purposes only?

LABOUR CONDITIONS


On the orders of the day:

Clarence Gillis

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. CLARENCE GILLIS (Cape Breton South):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a

question of the Prime Minister. I am in receipt of a copy of a telegram sent to the Prime Minister under date of January 29 by the New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Union of the [DOT]Steel Workers Organizing Committee. The wire indicated that the workers in that area are disturbed over the refusal of the government to honour the principles of collective bargaining laid down in order in council P.C. 2685, particularly in the case of the Kirkland Lake dispute. The wire also indicates that stoppages of work may take place in other essential industries in Canada unless the government insists that without delay the mine operators of the Kirkland mines accept the principle of collective bargaining.

Has the Prime Minister replied to the telegram of the New Glasgow steel workers, and would he tell the house the nature of his reply?

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The morning

has been pretty well occupied: through deliberations with the cabinet, and other matters. The result is I have not had a chance to see some of the communications which have come in. I shall endeavour, however, to answer this one as soon as possible.

SHIPBUILDING DISPUTES-ANNULMENT OF AWARD BY BOARD OF CONCILIATION


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Angus MacInnis

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. ANGUS MacINNIS (Vancouver East):

I should like to ask a question of the acting Minister of Labour. I have a telegram from John W. Bruce, international organizer for -the Plumbers and Steamfitters Association, a group identified with the American Federation of Labor. Mr. Bruce complains about an order in council passed on Monday last, on the recommendation of the Minister of Labour, annulling an award of the board of conciliation acting in respect of certain shipbuilding yards in Ontario and Quebec. Would the minister explain the procedure in this matter, and will he table the order in council mentioned?

Hon. N. A. McLARTY (for the Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, the telegram

received by the hon. member for Vancouver East (Mr. Maclnnis) was not called to my attention. I should not like to give a

The Address-Mr. Pouliot

detailed answer as to the effect of the order in council passed on Monday last in connection with shipbuilding plants. The hon. member is aware that a board of conciliation was appointed to investigate one particular plant, whereas the commission was appointed to investigate all plants as a group. My impression is that the order in council referred to deals with the report of the commission; I was not aware that it dealt with the report of the board. I shall be glad, however, to make further inquiries and advise the house and the hon. member in connection with this matter.
