I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Labour. In this morning's Journal it is reported that 500 miners have been dismissed from the Edmonton coal mines because the dominion government has given no definite assurance that the coal subsidy will be continued after March 31.

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have already called attention to the fact that questions arising out of editorials or statements in newspapers are not such as should be asked on the orders of the day. They should be put on the order paper so that answers can be given properly.
