LIB

James Allen (Jim) Byrne

Liberal

Mr. J. A. Byrne (Kootenay East):

Mr. Speaker, a humble backbencher would like to direct a question to a learned frontbencher, the Minister of Public Works. Is it the intention of the minister to construct a museum to house a model of the more ancient Bennett buggy as well as the more modern version which was unveiled at a colourful ceremony yesterday afternoon?

TRANS-CANADA PIPE LINE INVESTIGATION OF WALK-OUT EAST OF PORT ARTHUR


On the orders of the day:

Douglas Mason Fisher

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

Mr. D. M. Fisher (Port Arthur):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Labour. Would the minister make a statement on the month-old walk-out affecting 700 men on the Northern Ontario Pipe Line Crown Corporation project, from the viewpoint of the action taken by his department to get the men back to work?

Michael Starr (Minister of Labour)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Michael Starr (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to thank the hon. member for giving me notice of his intention to ask this question. With regard to the question that has been raised by the hon. member I might say that my understanding is that the pipe line association of Canada has reached an agreement with the two unions involved in the dispute, and that consequently there would appear to be no reason why the cutting and clearing operations on the northern pipe line project should not be resumed at once by the contractors or their subcontractors. This agreement does not require the approval of my department, but we are willing to give effect to the wage rates established under such an agreement in

4156 HOUSE OF

Inquiries of the Ministry accordance with the provisions of the Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act once the parties to the agreement provide us with a copy of it, or adequate confirmation thereof.

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. Is the minister in a position to say whether this walk-out is now a lock-out?

Mr. Fisher:

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. It is supplementary to the one I asked the Minister of Labour. Has the minister anything to report on the walk-out on the Northern Ontario Pipe Line Crown Corporation project, as it affects the contracts awarded by that corporation which is under the minister?

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Gordon Churchill (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

I should like to thank the hon. member for drawing this matter to my attention. I am having an investigation made. The information I have at the moment is that the strike has been settled. Whether or not work has been resumed in all parts of the area that is to be cleared I do not know, but I should know soon. The contract under which the contractors have undertaken the work requires that the clearing of the right of way for the pipe line be done during the winter. They must, of course, adhere to that stipulation in the contract.

Hon. Michael Starr (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I do not think I am in a position to do so until the parties involved have been advised. I think it would be most unfair for me to say anything.
