Mr. PUGSLEY:

I should like to ask the Minister of Labour, whom I am glad to observe in his seat, a question upon a subject of very great importance and of very great interest to the people of this country. A long time ago, recognizing the great rapidity at which the cost of living was increasing, this Government, upon the recommendation, I understand, of the Minister of Labour, appointed a commission to inquire into the matter. I should like to ask the minister to inform the House what information has been gathered, what the commission has done, whether it is still at work, and when we may expect the report?

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
Subtopic:   THE HIGH COST OF LIVING COMMISSION.
