Unionist

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

I can assure
my hon. friend there is no overlapping. For example, one purpose, out of a great many that might- be suggested, would be this: The Minister of Labour might, in
respect of the last section of the Bill that was passed here to-day, refer to the committee which is studying labour problems

and the relations generally between employers and employees, the question as t-o whether he should intervene, under the power of that section, in relation to some particular labour disturbance.
