Liberal

Mr. FIELDING:

I made no condition
about Mr. McLachlan at all, in fact I had not given that phase of the question much thought, but I think if we have legal power

and the Minister of Labour holds that we have-to revive the commission-I do not like the term "revive"; I think the commission is still alive-they should be asked to resume the inquiry, go to Cape Breton and acquaint themselves sympathetically with conditions on the ground. I have every hope that if that is done you will have a satisfactory conclusion of the difficulty.
