CCF

Angus MacInnis

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

Mr. ANGUS MacINNIS (Vancouver East):

Reports have been made to me from Vancouver that the controller of sugar rationing has given instructions that ration cards lost are not to be replaced. I cannot understand an order of the kind being made, and. I suggest that the minister should look into it at once.

Hon, C. D. HOWE (Minister of Munitions and Supply): I am not aware of such an

order, but I shall be glad to look into it.

Mr. J. K. BLAIR (Wellington North):

I

would ask the government if they will comply with the request of my committee that the auditor general make a full report on finances so as to avoid many of these questions that are being asked on various problems. I have reference to a report such as they used to have in former years.

EMPLOYMENT IN INDUSTRY OF WOMEN OVER THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF AGE


On the orders of the day:


SC

John Horne Blackmore

Social Credit

Mr. J. H. BLACKMORE (Lethbridge):

On July 17 I started to read a letter on which I proposed to base a question to the Minister of Labour regarding the employment of women in munitions work in Vancouver. Your Honour saw fit to cause me to stop reading the letter and indicated that the minister would have an opportunity to answer the question later. I wonder if I might have that question answered.

Humphrey Mitchell (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):

I thought the hon. member intended to put the question on the order paper. There is no government regulation under the war emergency training programme which prevents the training or employment of women over the age of thirty-five, but it does sometimes happen in particular industries that the employer himself, as a matter of internal policy, restricts employment to women not over the age of thirty-five. Every effort is being made by the government, through the war emergency training programme, to move as many women as possible into industry. I should like to correct the

impression that has got abroad in western Canada that there is any government regulation that has for its purpose the preventing of the training or employment of women in industry over the age of thirty-five.
