Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GEARY:

These are matters which have been referred to' me, Mr. Speaker; I do not ask them of my own accord. I would like to ask the Postmaster General if he will give an answer to a question which comes from London and which arises by reason of an accident which occurred the other day in which certain railway mail Clerks were injured. My correspondents desire to know if the fact that railway mail clerks are engaged in a

hazardous occupation will have any effect upon the civil sendee salary revision as it affects their class. I would also ask when the new schedule will be presented to the House.

Hon. P. J. VENIOT (Postmaster General):

I may say to the hon. gentleman that yesterday I asked for a conference between representatives of the Canadian Legion and several of the officials of the department. They had a very lengthy discussion yesterday afternoon and a statement of the result is now being prepared. I have here merely a synopsis of what occurred, which I would' not like to give to the House until I have the full notes prepared together with the result, in order that I may lay them before the House. If I gave these few notes now they might lead people astray.
