Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I desire to direct a question to the Minister of Labour, who I think is the appropriate minister, although three ministers are involved. I understand that a delegation of farmers met three ministers, as well as the director of national selective service, in Ottawa yesterday and presented a resolution endorsed by thirty-six Ontario county units of the federation of agriculture, which resolution contained constructive proposals for relieving the present acute farm labour situation. Will the Minister of Labour indicate to the house the nature of these proposals, as well as the steps which the government is prepared to take with respect to them?
