Humphrey Mitchell (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Mr. MITCHELL:

As my hon. friend no doubt knows, there is a measure of cooperation between ourselves and the United States in the matter of labour supply in the broadest sense. Perhaps I might refer to steel at the moment. We get considerable exports of steel to this country to permit our industries to maintain the present tempo of production. While what my hon. friend says may be true-I have not looked into that aspect of the matter-we take what I might call a broad view of the question', and having regard to this movement in that part of the country we felt it was a duty as good neighbours at least in part to comply with the request of the United States.
