Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):
Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Labour? Has the minister received a submission from the Saskatchewan Railway Employees Association, whose headquarters are in Biggar, Saskatchewan, requesting his intervention with a view to postponing the implementation by the railway companies of the compulsory check-off of union dues, to be initiated at the end of this month, until a countrywide referendum of railway employees can be held, and if so would the minister advise the House of his intentions in this regard?
