Liberal

Mr. COPP:

The Provident fund is an insurance scheme and under its provisions an employee who was injured temporarily received nothing. It applied only to the man himself after he had been with the railway a number of years; upon his retirement he got $30 a month, but his dependents get nothing. And the superannuation ceased with his death. This act provides that the railway employees shall receive the compensation the same as all other railway employees, irrespective of the Provident Fund Act.
