Hon. Michael Starr (Ontario):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Labour. In view of the prolonged strike of the longshoremen at St. John's, Newfoundland, could he bring the house up to date on what further steps he is planning to take to bring both parties together in order to arrive at a solution of this dispute?

Hon. A. J. MacEachen (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, the latest word I have is that the federal mediators propose and hope to bring the parties together to reconvene the meetings early next week, and the purpose of these meetings is either to explore or settle the issues outstanding, or the development of other methods of settlement. These officials are in constant touch with both parties in exploring every possible avenue that might lead to a settlement.

Mr. Starr:

In view of the fact that the efforts to do this in the past four weeks were without any satisfaction or result, would the minister consider bringing both parties together and negotiating himself in this matter?

Allan Joseph MacEachen (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Mr. MacEachen:

Mr. Speaker, the officials who are dealing with this situation are experienced in these problems. They have not been active in the situation for a full month because, as my hon. friend knows, in situations of this kind there must be a willingness and a desire on the part of the parties to reach a settlement before a mediator can actively function. It is a fact also that the federal mediators have not been able to deal alone with the situation because there have been other well-meaning persons also attempting to settle it. It may be now that a situation has been created in which the fullest use of federal mediators will take place.
