Mr. WILLIAM ALVES BOYS (South Simcoe) presented the fourth report of the Special Committee appointed to consider the possibility of reducing or rearranging the staffs of the Inside Civil Service with a view to securing the greatest efficiency with the minimum number of employees, as follows:
Friday, June 7, 1919.
Your Committee having had before them the report of the Civil Service Commission made to the Governor in Council, pursuant to Order in Council dated 17th April, 1918, and having considered that portion thereof relating to the retirement and superannuation of certain officials therein referred to, and having heard evidence upon the question from a number of witnesses called and examined under oath, are of the opinion that such officials, owing to their age or permanent impairment of health, should be retired with a reasonable superannuation allowance, and with that end in view, your Committee beg to recommend that immediate
action be taken to give effect to the said report so far as the same relates to the officials therein referred to; and further that the necessary steps be taken to add to the list of such officials, for a like purpose, the names of any other employee in the Inside Civil Service, who for similar reasons might, with advantage to the service, be retired therefrom upon a like superannuation allowance.
All which is respectfully submitted. PROHIBITION.
