The Prime Minister
stated a few evenings ago that the secretaries employed by ministers of the lata government would be placed in such a position that they would receive, as nearly as possible, their ordinary salaries, less secretarial allowance. My late secretary, Mt. Lynton, was first engaged in the Department of Customs; later he was taken by the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Crerar) when he assumed the office of Minister of Agriculture. He served him for two years and was then taken over by me. I am anxious to know what the disposition of the minister is with regard to Mr. Lynton, or what he proposes to do in that connection?
