Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. J. EARL LAWSON (York South):

To an audience less informed than members of the House of Commons, an historic review of the different measures taken to cope with the unemployment problem, such as was given by the Minister of Labour (Mr. Rogers) this afternoon in the first hour of his address, would indeed have been intensely interesting. He intimated .the steps which had been taken by a previous government and by the present government to meet the problem. I have no desire to express commendation of one government or condemnation of the other.
