Thomas Wilson Crothers (Minister of Labour)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CROTHERS:

The proposition of the hon. member for North Cape Breton that we should get information and lay it before the members of this House and the people of this country is quite a reasonable one. It is only a few months since this Order in Council was passed. I have here a full report regarding the conditions as to the price of sugar, I have another in regard to anthracite coal, and perhaps my hon. friend heard me say that we had in process of preparation other reports concerning flour, the canneries and cold storage. I am going to lay all these on the Table; others will follow just as soon as we can have them completed, and we shall secure a great deal of useful information from every one of these reports.

Topic:   IN COMMITTEE OF SUPPLY.
