Mr. CLARENCE GILLIS (Cape Breton South):

Mr. Speaker, may I be permitted to address a question to the Minister of Munitions and Supply? It arises out of a telegram received from the secretary-treasurer of the mine workers' union in Nova Scotia setting out that the employees of the Indian Cove Coal Company have been idle for the past week. My information is that this company's output is largely taken by the Canadian National Railways. Can the minister explain to the house why this mine should be idle at the present time?
