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?
