2 and 3. As the organizational structure of the company is on a regional and area basis, and with the exception of the Newfoundland area the boundaries thereof do not coincide with provincial boundaries, the company does not maintain records which would readily produce information to answer the question in the form asked. In so far as the question relates to the Newfoundland area; since 1965 the company has extracted aggregate data for those lay-offs exceeding 30 days or any complete month. In 1965, 1966 and up to November 30, 1967 such lay-off actions affecting scheduled employees numbered 151, 269 and 150 respectively. The classification "laid-off" is not normally used in respect of non-scheduled employees.

4. New hirings of scheduled employees during the years 1965, 1966 and up to November 30, 1967 totalled 1067, 591 and 384 respectively. In addition, employee recalls for those who had been laid-off in those years or prior years for more than 30 days or any complete calendar month numbered 704, 660 and 556 respectively.

5. New hirings of non-scheduled employees during the years 1965, 1966 and up to November 30, 1967 amounted to 12, 9 and 19 respectively.

Prior to 1965 this type of statistical records was not maintained in respect of the Newfoundland area.

Mr. J. A. Byrne (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Transport):

The management of Canadian National Railways advises as

follows: 1 and 2. Pursuant to a judgment dated January 24, 1968 and Order No. R-1514 dated February 16, 1968, issued by the Canadian Transport Commission, implementation of a proposal providing for the reciprocal withdrawal of telegraph offices in areas where the volume of business does not justify the retention of offices by both Canadian National and Canadian Pacific will commence with an initial group of 16 locations as undernoted. When this occurs, the remaining office will be set up to represent CN-CP telecommunications.

CN withdraws from Kentville, N.S. Sherbrooke, Que. Chatham, Ont.

Port Colborne, Ont. Smith's Falls, Ont. Sudbury, Ont. Moose Jaw, Sask. Red Deer, Alta.

CP withdraws from St. John's, Nfld. North Sydney, N.S. Moncton, N.B. Drummondville, Que.

St. Hyacinthe, Que. St. Catharines, Ont. Prince Albert, Sask. New Westminster, B.C.

To ease the impact of the technological and operational changes arising from this plan, agreement was reached by the companies with representatives of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union. This agreement provides protective measures to assist telecommunications employees who may be adversely affected by changes under this plan.

3. Under the reciprocal withdrawal plan none of the communities involved will be without telegraph service.
