John Ritchie MacNicol

National Government

Mr. J. R. MacNICOL (Davenport):

The press yesterday and again to-day refers to certain strikes in several large plants in the riding I have the honour to represent. Each of those plants is engaged in the manufacture of munitions of war. I know many of the men who are probably now on strike. They are all British, and I know they would not willingly be on strike; they would prefer to be at their jobs. I also know many of those connected with the management. I am convinced that the Minister of Labour has the matter in hand and is just as anxious as each and all of us to have the strikes settled amicably. I should be pleased if he would give us a statement as to the progress of settlement.
