Edgar Nelson Rhodes (Minister of Fisheries)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. RHODES:

Mr. Speaker, it is proposed to reorganize the work of the board by placing directly under the control of the department and the minister, the executive and administrative work which hitherto has been conducted by the board, thereby leaving to the technical officers more complete freedom and time to attend to the purely technical questions the consideration of which constitutes the main function of the board. The introduction of this bill is the first step towards the work of reorganization.
