Mr. GOULD:

Listening to the remark of the Minister of Labour, I was impressed with the thought that, seeing that he had gone down and, in his judgment, proved the building to be unworthy and unsafe, he might have followed up that idea by getting an engineer to investigate and make a report, and submit that report to the House. It seems to me that it would be more authentic, and we would have more to go on, if an engineer would submit a report and state that the building was unsafe or that portions of it were unsafe, and it would not in any way depreciate the ideas or the sentiments of the Minister of Labour. It seems to me the committee here has a right, if buildings are alleged to be unsafe, to have reports from some competent authority in regard to them.
