1. Did so during recess.

2 and 3. The Civil Service Commission has given careful consideration to the recommendations made by the Post Office Department but is unable to recommend for the consideration of His Excellency the Governor General in Council higher compensation rates for these classes because it considers that in comparison with other classes of positions of more or less comparable duties and responsibilities, these positions in the Post Office Department are now adequately remunerated. The commission has agreed to give further consideration to the provision of higher compensation for certain employees of the class railway mail clerk, which will include employees in charge of railway post offices and probably others.

4. The Civil Service Commission was requested by order in council to proceed with a study of the professional, scientific and translators classes with a view to increased compensation.

5. No. A report is in course of preparation.
