Mr. McLure:

I am going to take hardly any time at all. I would have liked to speak on the first item, but I know that time is rather precious and it is getting late. I want to ask one favour of the Minister of Labour. In Charlottetown we have machine shops. Recently I have had telegrams, as I believe the Prime Minister, the Minister of National Defence and the Minister of Labour have had, stating that the machine shops are closed because no work was given them by the Department of Defence Production. Without elaborating on the matter at all, I want to ask the Minister of Labour to urge the Minister of Defence Production and other ministers that something be done to provide work for the 200 men who have been laid off. It would be a good idea to do a little decentralizing and give our machine shops an opportunity. They have qualified men who can do all kinds of repairs. What we have done in the past is proof that we have the men to do the work. I ask that favour of the Minister of Labour.

matter, I might say that the figures given by the minister as to the size of the herd at the present time do not correspond with the take-off. The take-off of pelt has gone down each year. According to last year's report, and as I had information from one member of the research party, it is now more difficult to make a selection of skins owing to some form of disease that is in 68108-332i

the herd that arrives there from time to time.

Mr. McLure:

Following item 135 there is

a note "appropriation not required for 1953-54." I understand that results from some change made in the department with regard to fur seals. I should like to know why there is not going to be any vote.
