Mr. CLARENCE GILLIS (Cape Breton South):
I should like to address a question to the Minister of Labour based upon a telegram which I received this morning from the secretary of the mine workers' union at Inverness, Nova Scotia, pointing out that 150 men are idle at that mine as a result of changed conditions brought about by the provincial government, which are the operators of the mine. The wire is lengthy, and I sent a copy of it to the minister. Has his department any knowledge of the situation, and if so, what steps are proposed to be taken to remedy it?
