Mr. HENRI BOURASSA (Labelle):

May I call the attention of the Minister of Railways (Mr. Manion) to what seems to be a concerted direction given to employees of the Canadian Pacific Railway. I have received within the last few days five or six letters in which it is intimated that a further cut of ten per cent is going to be made by the company in wages, of which I know nothing; but besides, that the matter is to be dealt with by a committee of the house. I was rather surprised at the contents of those letters, but as the statement is contained in every one of them I presume some kind of intimation must have been given to these employees. Perhaps the minister could enlighten the house?
