Mr. GARLAND (Carleton) :

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. Why did the Government grant the increase of $1,000 to Deputy Ministers?

2. Why does the Government propose to cut off the bonus from all civil servants receiving $2,400 or over, and from many smgle persons under that amount?

3. Does the Government intend to grant more equitable salaries to the Civil Service?

Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN(Leader of the Opposition) :

I really do not know

what the Government have in mind as to the closing of this session. I have heard statements that they expect to close on Saturday. If so, I am bound to presume that there will be no supplementary estimates.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

Well, this is Thursday. While very small supplementary estimates, secondary or tertiary to the main supplementary estimates, sometimes do come down late, I have never seen the

Mr. FIELDING:

.There will certainly be supplementary estimates. The only part of my right hon. friend's statement that I would have to object to is that anyone expects the session to end on Saturday. I have certainly no such expectation. There will be supplementary estimates, and I hope to have them ready to-morrow. More than that I cannot say at present.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) :

In reply to my right hon. friend's remark to the effect that the Government intends to close the session on Saturday, I would remind him that the Government has no control over Parliament in these matters. The Government has understood it was the wish of hon. members to get away as early as possible, and the Government has done all in its power to facilitate that end. The Government will continue so to do but I should not like my right hon. friend or any other member of the House to be under the impression that the Government will attempt in any way to control or limit discussions.
