CON

Leon Johnson Ladner

Mr. L. J. LADNER (Vancouver South):

Is it the intention of the government at the present session to bring about a salary revision for the civil service? I ask this question because of insistent inquiries made in different parts of the country and an insistent rumour that it is likely that this revision may be carried over until a subsequent session.
