Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (President of the Privy Council):
This is not my responsibility, Mr. Speaker. I believe that one of my colleagues is ready to answer the question.
Hon. James Richardson (Minister of Supply
and Services): The three reports, which are inter-related, of the chief adjudicator of the Public Service Staff Relations Board, and which pertain to the grievances of the Council of Postal Unions were received by the
Public Service Staff Relations Board on June 16, 1969. These reports were distributed on July 4, 1969. The thirteen working days between the date of receipt of the reports and the date of distribution were spent in printing, proof reading, final printing and distribution. That period of time is normal and there was no evidence of delay in these procedures.
