Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre) moved
for leave to introduce Bill No. 2, to provide for annual vacations with pay for employees.
He said: Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to provide for two weeks' annual vacation with pay after one year's service for all employees who come under federal labour jurisdiction. This bill is exactly the same as the one I have introduced on former occasions and which has had the support of hon. members opposite when it came to a vote. I trust if there is a government bill in the same field it will be at least as good as this one.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
