Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Minister of Finance):

Mr. Speaker, in the closing days of last session the hon. member for Edmonton West and the hon. member for Perth asked that the regulations pertaining to deposit insurance be referred to the standing committee on finance, trade and economic affairs. I undertook to do so in this session. Therefore with the leave of the house I should like to table in English and in French copies of bylaw No. 1 of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, passed as order in council No. 1967-579 as amended by order in council 1967-1065.

By leave I should also like to move:

That bylaw No. 1 of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, passed as order in council 1967-579 as amended by order in council No. 19671065, be referred to the standing committee on finance, trade and economic affairs.

Fernand-E. Leblanc

Liberal

Mr. Leblanc (Laurier):

Mr. Speaker, this bill introduces a new concept with regard to the verdict of a jury.

With a view to avoiding new trials which often cause useless delays and expenses, I propose that the verdict of 11 jurors have the same effect as a unanimous verdict.

I trust this bill can improve the administration of justice and make it more expeditious and more efficient.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

ACTIVITIES OF MEMBERS OF LABOUR RELATIONS TASK FORCE

NDP

Mr. Peiers

New Democratic Party

1. Has the Minister of Labour at hand a report of the recent activities of the gentlemen appointed to the labour relations task force, particularly with a view as to whether present or recently completed tasks for other governments and private corporations and unions, such as the government of Manitoba, Domtar, and the S.I.U., may have committed them to positions regarding management's rights and the matter of labour management co-operation which would limit their usefulness and openness of mind in the work they are now doing?

2. What is the record of such activities since 1963 for Dean Woods, Abbe Dion, John Crispo, and Dean Carrothers?

John Ross Matheson (Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister)

Liberal

Mr. John R. Malheson (Parliamentary Secretary to Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, the answer to starred question No. 68 is as follows: 1. No reports have been received either from the task force on labour relations, or from other persons, relating to the appointment of the members of the task force. The members of the task force were selected because of their reputations and extensive experience in labour relations matters. They have not completed nor are they presently involved in tasks which would in any way limit their usefulness and openness of mind in relation to the work of the task force.

2. Abbe Dion and John Crispo have served as chairmen of Domtar joint labour-management committees. Dean Woods has served as chairman of the province of Manitoba's joint labour-management review committee,
