Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, I have had no report today from the Polymer Corporation, 55946-49

but a few days ago it was reported to me that a conciliation board had been sitting on a labour-management dispute, and that the board had brought in a unanimous finding which the management intended to accept. What has developed since I cannot say. The management of the corporation handle their own labour negotiations. From what I know of the relations between the management and labour at Polymer I can assure my hon. friend that there is not likely to be a strike.
