Robert Laird Borden (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

Yes, but we need not go into matters of detail. My hon. friend the Minister of Labour has spoken on this question. It is a question that has been before parliament for four years. One would have supposed that a government responsible for all the legislation that goes through parliament, as every government under modern conditions is, would have taken up this subject. I do not know whether the hon. Minister of Labour concurs with the statement made by the hon. member for Nanaimo that the government at present have all the information necessary on this subject. Am I to infer that my hon. friend the Minister of Labour concurs in that statement?
