Mr. HOMUTH:

Does not that mean year by year? You cannot do it every month.

Mr. KARL HOMUTH (Waterloo South):

I want to speak for a moment on behalf of our party here and as a member of the industrial relations committee. I am amazed, sitting in this house where there are 245 members elected across the country, to find when we come to deal with these various problems that there is a group to my left which, no matter how right you are, tells you you are wrong because you do not belong to the socialist party in this country.

April 8, 1948

Mr. HOMUTH:

I am complaining about the group that sits down there to my left and never has a kind thing to say about anybody except members of the socialist group. You cannot expect them to say anything against the communists because the communists have wrapped their arms around them.

What I wanted to say on behalf of our party is this. We do not intend to debate this bill. We do not intend to go into the various clauses of it. When it comes before the committee we will deal with those clauses and put forward whatever argument we have to put forward. We are in favour of the general principle of the bill. We are happy that our party which is in power in Ontario has adopted the principle of it and is willing to do everything it can to bring about a national code in this country, which is so necessary to labour peace. I hope that other provinces will follow that lead. I hope that public opinion in the province of Quebec- although some say that Quebec will be a long time in passing such legislation-will convince the government, whatever government it may

Industrial Relations

be, that it ought to line up with the others. But as far as the Progressive Conservative party m this house is concerned, we do not intend to debate the bill. We are glad it has been brought forward now. Let us hurry it along and enact it into law.
