Mr. C. E. Johnston (Bow River):
Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys. According to press reports 82 men were laid off at one of the mines in Drumheller last week, and one of the large mines in Can-more is closing because of lack of orders. Can the minister tell the house what plans the government has in mind for increasing the markets for coal so the distressed coal industry of Alberta may get some relief?
