Resolved, That it is expedient to amend The Air Board Act, chapter 11 of the statutes of 1919 (1st Session), to provide that the Governor in Council may make regulations prescribing the compensation to be paid, the persons to whom, and the manner in which, such compensation shall be payable, for the death or injury resulting directly from a flight undertaken in the course of duty in the public service of Canada of any person employed in the public service of Canada, or employed under the direction of any department of the public service of Canada: Provided, however, that such regulations shall not extend to the payment of compensation for any death, or injury in respect of which provision for the payment of compensation, or a gratuity or pension is made by any other Act.
He said: His Excellency has been apprized of the subject matter of this resolution and has given his assent thereto.
Motion agreed to.
