UNEMPLOYMENT, SICKNESS AND INVALIDITY INSURANCE
Mr. A. A. HEAPS (North Winnipeg) moved;
That, in the opinion of this house, the committee on industrial and international relations be authorized to investigate and report on insurance against unemployment, sickness and invalidity.
He said: There is hardly any need for
me to speak to this motion, Mr. Speaker. Last year the committee on industrial and international relations reported to the house and asked that this same question be referred to the committee at this session for further consideration. I would like the house to adopt the motion so that the question can go before the committee. I understand that the Minister of Labour (Mr. Heenan) is quite agreeable to that being done.
Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister); In the absence of the Minister of Labour I may say that my hon.
friend is correct in his understanding. The government is quite willing to have this motion passed.
Motion agreed to.
