LIB

Mr. MITCHELL: (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

1. Yes.

2. The list was prepared by national selective service, after consultation with the wartime prices and trade board and the Department of Munitions and Supply.

3. The labour priorities schedule is continually being reviewed and revised by an informal interdepartmental committee of representatives of the wartime prices and trade board, the Department of Munitions and Supply and national selective service. The committee is presently comprised of the following persons: Sheldon Ross (Chairman),, Acting Chief, priorities division, national selective service. T. H. Robinson, Assistant Director, national selective service. J. G. Togo, associate coordinator of controls and labour liaison officer, Department of Munitions and Supply. R. G. Barclay, assistant director, employment service and unemployment insurance branch, Department of Labour. H. R. Kemp, economic adviser. Economic Research Branch, Wartime Prices and Trade Board. G. G. E. Raley, director of general supplies, supply division, wartime prices and trade board.

4. Yes.

5. No.

6. The detailed order of priority is confidential and is continually changing as the war production programme requirements vary. Generally speaking, the highest priority is assigned to industries, activities or establishments primarily and directly engaged in the production of combat materials and implements of war. This group is followed by other industries considered to be highly essential to the promotion and support of war production, to the supply of the armed forces, and to the maintenance of civilian economy. Next in order of priority are those industries which are considered important to civilian life, contributory to war production but not vital to the war effort. The lowest priority group are those for which no labour priority is considered to be justified under present circumstances.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

This motion was called on Monday last, when the hon. member was not in his seat. At the time the Minister of Justice (Mr. St. Laurent) requested that the motion be allowed to stand until the hon. member was here. To-day it happens that the Minister of Justice is necessarily absent from the house, and I would therefore ask the hon. member to allow the motion to stand until the Minister of Justice is present. He wishes to speak to the motion.
