Mr. HEAPS:

I presume this is the item on which the minister suggested we might discuss the general question of unemployment. It is not my intention to deal with it at any length. We are now in the fourth session of this parliament. Probably in the course of a few days parliament will prorogue; prorogation may be followed by dissolution, and it is quite possible that we may not be able to see the minister until at least after another election, assuming everything goes as the minister expects.

Mr. HEAPS:

What is the attitude of the government toward the questions which come strictly within its jurisdiction?-for instance, the question of conditions on ships leaving this country under Canadian registry. Has any policy in that regard been evolved by the department?

Mr. HEAPS:

Further, I complain that

even though the minister did make a brief statement yesterday on these matters, the draft conventions were approved by the governor in council almost four months ago. The matter is submitted to parliament in the dying hours of the session, although the papers could easily have been brought down many months earlier, thus giving hon. members who are interested an opportunity to study the recommendations.
