Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):
I will answer the first and last questions first. A strike has taken place in the United Shipyards in the city of Montreal, engineered by a minority group there. The union in question has asked for protection in order to permit the membership to go to work in an orderly manner. Arrangements have been made that every protection will be given to those union workers in that particular shipyard to see to it that they carry out the terms of their agreement so that the construction of these very necessary ships at this critical time in the nation's history will be proceeded with.
