Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. W. A. GORDON (Minister of Labour) :

Mr. Speaker, the government, in conjunction with the provinces and the municipalities has been proceeding since the beginning of the summer with the consideration of measures for unemployment relief. We are continuing the consideration of this matter and I believe that adequate provision will be made during the coming winter for the relief of those unable to take care of themselves. I am confident that no one in this country need worry about being adequately supplied with food, fuel, clothing and shelter.
