CLASSIFICATION OF THE INSIDE SERVICE.


Hon. NEWTON W. ROWELL (President of the Privy Counci): I beg to lay upon the Table a statement of the application of the classification of the inside service, that is the details of the application that would be included in Civil Government Estimates of the various departments. In connection with thb matter I desire to add a word of explanation which will make clear to the members of the House one or two matters which, but for that explanation, would not be clear in the document presented. In the past a portion of the work of .the Archives Branch - that is the outside branches of the service-has not been included under the head of Civil Government. Under the reclassification they are all brought under the head of Civil Government; therefore the details of this item show a total substantially in excess of the amount appearing under Civil Government in the printed Estimates. That is the explanation. The full details will be given when these Estimates come before the House.


L LIB

James Alexander Robb (Chief Government Whip)

Laurier Liberal

Mr. ROBB:

Will there be a corresponding reduction in the Estimates for the outside service?

Unionist

Mr. ROWELL:

There will be a corresponding reduction in the Estimates fob the outside service. In connection with the Department of Militia and Defence a somewhat similiar condition-exists. They have brought in under the head of Civil Government certain branches of the service that were organized during the war, which have been paid out of the demobilization appropriation prior to this date, but which must be continued now that the war is over. Therefore they are brought in under the head of Civil Government, and consequently the total amount .now shown is substantially in excess of the 256

amount of the Civil Government estimate brought down in the main Estimates. I should also add with reference to the Militia Department items that I understand the application of the classification as given, is the application as proposed by the Department of Militia and Defence. It has not been approved by the Civil Service Commission, and therefore it is merely the tentative proposal of the Department. Then there is one or two Departments in which the classification is not yet complete and by reason of that fact they are not included in the statement which I beg to lay upon the Table.

UNION

Richard Clive Cooper

Mr. R. C. COOPER (Vancouver S.):

I

would like to ask the Minister of Militia what setps have been taken to prevent the unauthorized wearing of returned soldiers buttons? It is a question of great interest to all returned soldiers in Canada in view of the finding of Magistrate Saunders in Calgary lately.
