Milton Fowler Gregg (Minister of Labour)
Hon. Milton F. Gregg (Minister of Labour):
I would be glad to take my hon. friend's question as notice. In answering it briefly now, however, it will be remembered that the provisions of this new act have been in effect now for less than four months. As it has gone along* the commission, under the powers granted it for the making of regulations by order in council or by the commission itself, has taken steps consistently each month to achieve those smaller adjustments which have been indicated as essential. As I said the other day, the new act has worked out very well on the whole. Following this interpretation I have given today, I should like the commission to have eight or ten months or a year in which to-observe its further operations, after which they will be in a position to iron out any further difficulties that may remain.
