CIVIL SERVICE LIST

L LIB

Mr. PROULX:

Laurier Liberal

1. Is it true that the Editorial Committee, appointed by the Government, on the alleged giound of economy have discontinued the printing of the Civi-l Service List?

2. If so, in view of the vast number of reports and blue books of doubtful value still being printed, is not the cancellation of the Civil Service List somewhat inconsistent?

3. Is the Government aware that nearly all banks and stores depend on the Civil Service List for authentic information upon which to extend credit to the members of the service for the necessaries of life in the same way that they use Dunn's or Bradstreet's?

4. Will the Government consider the reissue of the List?

Sir HENRY DRAYTON: (Secretary of State of Canada; Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. No. The duty of preparing and publishing the Civil Service List was among the duties assigned to the Civil Service Commission by Section 36 of the Act of 1918, but was eliminated from the Amending Act of 1919, and the last edition was published in the fall of 1918 by the said Commission.

2. In the fall of 1918 the work of reorganization commenced, to be followed by a complete reclassification of the personnel of the service, and is now rapidly approaching completion. Obviously it was impossible during that period to publish any list of the employees of the service which

would have been of any practical value or utility.

3. No information.

4. As soon as the classification is completed it is the intention of the Civil Service Commission to recommend to the Government that a new edition of the Civil Service List be at once published.
