Mr. Mackasey:

Mr. Speaker, I think the hon. member is quite unintentionally attributing to one particular person who is attached to the labour movement a role that is properly fulfilled by the Canadian Labour Congress. If he feels that he can interpret the Canadian Labour Congress' approach in the whole matter of wage and price control, then he knows more than the Minister of Labour. We have never discussed specific wage and price controls in our meetings. I am not at liberty to divulge precisely what we do discuss at these meetings.
