That was the matter tc which the hon. member for Quebec South directed attention a moment ago, and I said that the statement made last evening by the hon. member for Vancouver-Burrard gave some excellent reasons why such a provision should be inserted. It merely refers to an employee who is in fact an employee but who in reality is working to promote the destruction of employment; he shall not be able to take advantage of it. That is all it means. In view of what we know of in one or two instances in this country it is an admirable provision.
