Mr. JOSEPH READ:

I would suggest that as there is no great rush for thi3 Bill to be passed, .it shoo'd stand over for a week or possibly until after Easter to give the minister an opportunity of consulting with the employees. There is another point I wish to draw to his attention, and that is the definition of the word "employee." I notice there are a number of employees of the railway working at Port Borden who have not been paid according to the Mc-Adoo award. Are these men considered employees of the railway under this Bill?
