CIVIL SERVICE SALARIES


On the Orders of the Day.


CON

George Reginald Geary

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. G. R. GEARY (South Toronto):

I

wish to ask a question in reference to the report on the salaries of the civil servants. I understand that action has been deferred pending the appointment of the two other commissioners, there being only the chairman at

Want of Confidence Motion

the moment. There being no Civil Service Commission fully appointed, will the question of salaries have to remain in abeyance until the next session of parliament?

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The matter

need not necessarily remain in abeyance until the next session of parliament; I hope the commissioners will be appointed long before that time. I think I can say to my hon. friend that any delay that may be occasioned will not cause any loss to the civil servants in any particular.

Henry Alfred Mullins

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. H. A. MULLINS (Marquette):

Before the orders of the day are called I wish to bring up a personal matter. The correspondent of the Free Press sent out from the press gallery a statement that I was not in my seat with certain other members of the House last Friday night when the Hudson Bay railway was under discussion. That statement is untrue and unfair, and I have been subjected to a good deal of criticism in western Canada for being absent on that occasion. I am in receipt of letters from numerous parties in the vvest asking why I was not there as champion of the cause. I appeal to the Minister of Railways (Mr. Dunning), to my hon. friend from Springfield (Mr. Hay) and to my hon. friend from Neepawa (Mr. Murphy), who will certainly state that I was present in my seat all day Friday, and it is most unfair that a statement of that kind should be hurled agamst a member of the House.
