Mr. BUCHANAN:

Has the Minister of
Labour any further information about the coal mining situation in southern Alberta? I have a telegram stating that the miners at Lethbridge, Coalhurst, and Chinook went out last night and that they are taking a referendum next Tuesday as to whether or not they will accept the Harrison finding. It is also said that the cause'of their going out was their annoyance at the Government's failure to enforce the finding of Commissioner Harrison. I would like a statement from the Minister of Labour with regard to this matter.
