Mr. J. G. DIEFENBAKER (Lake Centre):

I would again direct a question to the Minister of Veterans Affairs in connection with the veteran students in the various universities who. having failed in one examination, find themselves obliged to leave by the end of this month unless something is done regarding them. Is the minister now in a position to advise the house and the country respecting the change which has been made, if any, and what is to be done to enable them to continue with their studies?

Hon. IAN A. MACKENZIE (Minister of Veterans Affairs): As I advised my hon.

friend the other day, the advisory committee on university training has given extensive consideration to this question. It has now made a recommendation, and it is the intention to submit to parliament within the next few days a proposal with regard to the amendment of the post-discharge reestablishment order.

Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):

I am glad to say that representatives of the union and company met yesterday afternoon and this morning and will meet again to-morrow morning with a view to laying a basis for settlement of the strike. Following the meeting held yesterday there was a joint statement which was issued* by Mr. D. B. Greig, treasurer of the Ford Motor Company of Canada Limited. At the conclusion of this morning's meeting the joint statement was issued by Mr. George Addes, international seeretaryM;reasurer of the United Automobile Workers of America. I think this shows an encouraging degree of cooperation.

POSTAL SERVICE

SEPARATION NOTICES TO WINNIPEG LETTER CARRIERS


On the orders of the day:

Ernest Bertrand (Postmaster General)

Liberal

Hon. ERNEST BERTRAND (Postmaster General):

Yesterday a question was asked

by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles), to which I promised to give an answer to-day. It was as to the separation notices which are now being sent to a number of men in the Winnipeg postal district.

While the department has no definite information, there would seem to be no doubt that the employees to whom the advices referred to by the hon. member were sent are those who are not qualified by examination for permanent appointment, or who are not entitled to the overseas preference. They would, therefore, not be retained indefinitely in any event. I feel that the hon. member will agree that it is in the best interests of these men that they be advised of the likelihood of their release to enable them' to look for employment elsewhere if they so dlesire.

Mr. WARREN:

I assume that P.C. means Progressive Conservative. In view of the speech of the hon. member for Lake Centre (Mr. Diefenbaker) to which we listened last night, I wonder whether he would* advise me whether I am entitled to legal assistance in a matter of this nature, or an error of this 'kind.
