Henry Herbert Stevens (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

Briefly, Mr. Speaker, may I say that there are two amendments, one is in regard to grading, involving the question of the grading of Garnet wheat, separately. The other is merely an adjustment of the eastern terminal elevator receipts to bring them into conformity with modern practice.

Edgar Nelson Rhodes (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. RHODES:

Mr. Speaker, this bill provides that there shall be no deductions of the salaries, pay or compensation of any employee of the public service up to and including the sum of $1,000. That range takes in a very large number of employees of the public service. As nearly as we can ascertain some eighteen thousand in number will be affected, including revenue postmasters, part time collectors of customs, lighthouse keepers, wharfingers, charwomen, seasonal or part time labourers, lockmen and bridgemen on the canals. Those in receipt of salaries above the sum of $1,000 will be subject to the same deduction as hitherto.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
