So far as the whips secretaries are concerned, they are overworked now!. Owing to their position they are called upon to work long hours, and a lot of work is imposed upon them. I think a great deal of this is due to the fact that members do not think they have a right to ask the ordinary sessional clerks to typewrite documents, and so the whips' secretaries are called uj>on to do the work. If it were better understood that sessional clerks generally could be called upon for that class of work, it would relieve these other officers of much of the work they are now called upon to do.
