Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):
The hon. member was kind
enough to give me notice of these three questions. In reply may I say that the matter of wages and hours of work in the steel industry is now being dealt with by Mr. Justice W. D. Roach, of the Ontario supreme court, as an industrial disputes inquiry commissioner. The points covered by the questions are under consideration, and I am advised by the commissioner that a meeting of all parties concerned is to be held to-morrow. I do not think there will be any undue delay in the report of the commissioner.
