Mr. CLARENCE GILLIS (Cape Breton South):
I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Defence, a copy of which I have sent to him. It arises out of a telegram received this morning from Halifax setting out that some 1,800 civilian personnel may be laid off at H.M.C. dockyard, Halifax. Can the minister give the house any assurance of continued operations at the dockyard in order to avoid a badly aggravated unemployment. problem in that city?
