Mr. MACDOUGALL:

Clause 2, paragraph (a) reads:

In this act, unless the context otherwise requires, the term "industrial undertaking" includes:

(a) Mines, quarries, and other works for the extraction of minerals from the earth.

In regard to coal mining in Nova Scotia, from my association with the miners' unions, I believe it is a great bone of contention with them whether the eight hour day should apply to what we call "bank to bank" or to the working face. If this were interpreted to mean an eight hour day at the working face, the coal miners of Nova Scotia would really be working about nine hours a day; but if it means from bank to bank, then the eight hour day would probably mean seven and a half hours at the working face. That is what they have been striving for through their unions for many years, and I hope the legislation will be interpreted so that it will mean an eight hour day from bank to bank.

Mr. MACDOUGALL:

In Nova Scotia the eight hour day is statutory and it is an eight hour day at the working face, but the objective of the miners is to have an eight hour day from bank to bank. Probably I use some technical terms unfamiliar to the minister,

Eight Hour Day

but the miners are very much concerned about the matter and I would like to see the legislation cover the miners' objective.
