Mr. COLDWELL:

But he must not make a practice of landing on an unlicensed field under hazardous conditions. Is that not correct?

Mr. COLDWELL:

My advice comes from someone who looked it up for me this morning. I am not quoting the exact phraseology of the regulation, but I am giving a summary of its intent. I should be surprised if the

The Budget-Mr. Coldwell

minister has not a regulation concerning matters of this sort. If not, it is time he had.

Mr. HOWE:

In any event I suggest this is minor law breaking in view of what is involved at the present time in that dispute. Far more serious offences against the law are taking place.

Mr. COLDWELL:

I have said what I

wanted to say, Mr. Speaker. I believe we as a parliament not only have to take cognizance of a situation of this kind but have to do what we can to amend it. I do not believe we shall have satisfactory labour conditions as long as we leave the two parties in industry to struggle along between themselves. I believe, with the Prime Minister, that the community, the third party, has some interest in this; and from time to time in this house some of my colleagues and I have suggested that the time has arrived when in order to deal with matters of the kind we should have a national board or committee-whatever you like to call it; in the final analysis it means the same thing- representative of organized labour as such, of the employing interests as such, and of the community as such. When I say it should be representative of the community I do not mean in any narrow sense, but I believe interests in the community such as the consumer and the farmer have to be taken into account. So I suggest to the Minister of Labour that he qualify the statement he made last week regarding the ten-cent an hour increase. I suggest to him and to the boards considering the matter of wages in dispute that if they examine the statements of these companies and the wages of the workers-

Why? Because the conciliator was appointed on June 11 and did not get in touch with the men until seventeen days later.

Mr. MITCHELL:

May I say to my hon. friend that there is a concerted move across the country to go around these boards, and I used the new technique of appointing a commissioner in an endeavour to stabilize the situation. These boards were made up of just the people my hon. friend speaks of, nominated by labour and by the employers, with an impartial chairman.

Mr. COLDWELL:

Well, I am urging the minister to see to it that in view of the profits being made by these companies;. in view of the fact that the government itself allowed them to increase the price of steel by $5 a ton, the wages of the workers be sufficient to maintain them and their families in ordinary decent circumstances, and that the hours of work and the necessary holidays for recuperation be granted to the workers as they have requested at this time.
