Mr. Fraser:

I understood the minister to say that he had not received a request from the dominion command of the Legion. I should like to ask him if any other department of the government has received it, because on March 4 a brief was presented to this government.

WORKING CONDITIONS OF NAVY PERSONNEL


On the orders of the day:


CCF

John Oliver Probe

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. John O. Probe (Regina City):

I should like to address a question to the Minister of National Defence. In view of continuing reports of disciplinary problems and complaints with respect to working conditions among Canadian naval personnel, will the Minister of National Defence indicate what steps he has taken to investigate all aspects of the repeated disturbances? Will he consider setting up a parliamentary or other committee from outside the service to delve fully into naval service conditions?

Brooke Claxton (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Hon. Brooke Claxion (Minisier of National Defence):

The department has received wireless reports of the incidents to which the member has referred. Upon the return of the ships, those incidents and the causes of them will be the subject of a full and thorough investigation. It is not considered appropriate that the matter should be referred to a parliamentary committee, but the investigation will be conducted by a committee which will include other than naval service representation.
