Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CROCKET.

Ordinarily I would be 'disposed to stand by the unanimous report of a select committee of the House, and would have done so in this instance had it not been for the statements which I have heard from the Minister of Labour. Those statements have convinced me that this proposal is simply for the purpose of further shelving this question and of shirking a responsibility which properly attaches to the Department of Labour. For these reasons, I intend to vote against the motion for the adoption of this report.
