John Robert (Jack) Nicholson (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. J. R. Nicholson (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to table two copies in English and two in French of the report of the inquiry commission on the St. Lawrence ports. Hon. members will recall that this commission was established in June of last year to inquire into the size and make-up of work gangs employed in the three major St. Lawrence ports and at the same time to inquire into job security in these ports and related matters.

In tabling the report I should like to thank the commissioner, Dr. Laurent Picard, for the time and effort he put into this important work and more particularly for his patience in the conduct of the inquiry.
