Mr. FRED ROSE (Cartier):

In view of

the fact that the officials of the Ford Motor Company have refused to meet with members of the union, will the Minister of Labour tell the house what steps are contemplated to help bring this strike to an early conclusion?

Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):

If the hon. member would

direct his question to the people who are taking part in the dispute, and ask them what they are doing to bring this strike to a successful conclusion, it would be better. The Ford Motor company, rightly or wrongly-I think rightly-have raised objections to the pickets refusing to permit the management and clerical help to enter the plant. As a matter of fact the plant appears to be in a state of seige. I would ask my hon. friend, who comes from the good city of Montreal, whether he would have any objection if someone set up a picket around his house-remembering always that a Canadian's home is his castle.

As soon as the parties to the dispute come to an agreement I shall be very glad to sit down with the minister of labour of Ontario to make an attempt to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion.

INTERNATIONAL LABOUR CONFERENCE

PARTICIPATION OF CANADA-POSSIBILITY OF INCLUDING FEMALE REPRESENTATION


On the orders of the day:


PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. G. DIEFENBAKER (Lake Centre):

I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Labour arising out of a statement he made on Friday afternoon, when he set out the personnel who would attend the international labour conference at Paris on October 15. In view of the fact that on practically every other delegation there is a woman representative, and having regard to the fact that at this conference social and employment problems will be to the fore, was consideration given to the appointment of a woman as a representative from Canada, and if so, why was a woman not appointed?

I do not see any urgency in the hon. member's question. It should be put on the order paper.

Mr. DIEFENBAKER:

I bow to Your

Honour's ruling; this, however is a matter which concerns women's organizations across the country, and one which can be decided only at this time, because the conference meets on October 15.

Mr. J. A. ROSS (Souris):

I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Finance arising from an article which appeared in the Globe and Mail of September 29, stating that farm implements are no longer rationed. Is it not necessary to procure a permit in order to purchase tractors or other farm machinery?
