Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

I wish to address a question to the Minister of Labour (Mr. McLarty). On Saturday morning forty-five union members were locked out at Windsor, Ontario, by the Chrysler corporation. Attempts to inform their fellow workers peacefully were frustrated by local police, and since then several arrests have been made. Will the government undertake to protect workers against such violations of their democratic rights, which are specifically safeguarded under No. 27 of the defence of Canada regulations, as approved by order in council P.C. 3751 of August 13, 1940?
