Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):
Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day are called I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Labour to whom I sent notice of my intention to do so. I have a telegram from the Montreal trades and labour council, signed by J. Gariepy. The trades and labour council protests the dilatoriness of the Department of Labour and urges the appointment of a commission immediately to investigate charges of discrimination againt union members by the Dominion Engineering Company and the Montreal Locomotive Works, which have been brought to the attention of the trades and labour council by responsible officers of the Montreal war labour organization production committee. Will the minister give immediate attention to this matter, in order to prevent serious trouble developing in these war industries?
