Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg Norlh Centre):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for

May 11, 1965

Inquiries of the Ministry the Minister of Labour. When I asked the Minister yesterday about the possibility of the Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act being amended by July 1 so that federal employees covered by it would have the same conditions other employees have under the Canada Labour Code, he told me he was shy about giving me a deadline and that he did not intend to let me beguile him. I wonder whether the Minister is aware of the fact that on February 26, when I asked him whether these people would be covered by July 1-those who are federal employees-in the same way as those who come under the Canada Labour Code, his reply was "That is the intention." Will the Minister confirm that intention now?

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

Well, Mr. Speaker, it was stated at the time the Canada Labour Code was debated that it was the intention of the Government to apply the same principle to its own employees, and that is still the intention.

Mr. R. R. Southam (Moose Mountain):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question I should like to direct to the Minister of Labour. On Friday last the hon. Member for Melville (Mr. Ormis-ton) inquired from the Minister whether the

hearings concerning the C.N.R. run-through problems were concluded, and when we may expect the report from Judge Freedman. The Minister indicated that he would take the question as notice and give the House an answer this week. Is he now prepared to give the House that answer?

INQUIRY OF THE MINISTRY


On the orders of the day:


PC

Wallace Bickford (Wally) Nesbitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. W. B. Nesbitt (Oxford):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a very brief question to the Prime Minister, although perhaps it might also be directed to the Minister of Transport, who I understand was present on the occasion in question. My question concerns a very intriguing report in yesterday's press indicating that Premier Ho Chi Minh of North Viet Nam, Premier Chou En-lai of China, Premier Castro of Cuba and Premier Kosygin of the Soviet Union were formally invited to take part in the convention of the Young Liberal Party which took place in Toronto last week end. In view of the fact that they did not turn up at that meeting, I am wondering whether the Government is now considering issuing formal invitations to those gentlemen to visit Canada.
