Mr. SPEAKER:

As this motion calls for concurrence in a report of the Select Committee on Standing Orders, under the rules of the House it requires notice, and in the absence of notice the unanimous consent of the House would seem to be necessary.

OTTAWA IMPROVEMENT COMMISSION


Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Prime Minister) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 135, to amend the Ottawa Improvement Commission Act, 1919. He said: The Bill is not of very great importance. There are two clauses. The first provides for the appointment of a secretary by the Governor in Council. I believe the reason is that the chairman of the commission has a secretary who is acting gratuitously, and that he should be appointed in this way. I really do not know who the secretary is; the chairman is Mr. Matthews. The second clause enables the commission to lease or sell any land not required. There is no such power in the Act now.

Unionist (Liberal)

Mr. FIELDING:

My recollection is that in the original Act it was intended that the secretary should be drawn from the

Civil Service and that his services should be gratuitous. Does this create a paid secretaryship?
