Hon. N. A. McLARTY (Minister of Labour):

The hon. member for Cape Breton South (Mr. Gillis) was kind enough to give me notice of this question. I may state also that shortly before noon I received word from the secretary of the Canadian congress of labour along similar lines. Since that time we have been endeavouring to get in touch with the management of the mine at Westville, but without success because of an electrical storm which is now on in that district. We have been told that contact can be made in a short time. I can assure my hon. friend that every step possible will be taken to deal with the situation when the facts are definitely known.
