Letter to Mr. Harold E. Winch
MINISTER OF LABOUR
July 18th, 1936
Mr. Harold E. Winch, M.L.A.,
3792 Knight Road,
Dear Mr. Winch:-
In replying to your letter re agreement between the Provincial and Federal Governments, on ex-relief camp boys working on railroads, there is no agreement between the Provincial and Federal Governments in this matter.
As you are aware, I think, these young men have never been considered a Provincial responsibility. We have never contributed to their relief, so that they are entirely a problem for the Federal Government to deal with.
I imagine that what you have in mind is the wage that is being paid. Again the Provincial Government has no control over the wages paid on railroads, this industry being one entirely controlled by federal authority.
With kind regards,
Yours very truly,
